Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Inks two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canadiens on Wednesday.

McNiven spent most of the 2019-20 campaign in the ECHL, posting an unsightly 4.16 GAA and .889 save percentage in eight appearances with the Norfolk Admirals, but he also drew into three contests with AHL Laval, registering a far more respectable 2.33 GAA and .919 save percentage over that span. The 23-year-old backstop will almost certainly spend the entirety of the 2020-21 season in the minors.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

McNiven was injured after taking a Shea Weber shot to the face during Monday's practice, but the 23-year-old netminder was evidently able to shake it off in short order. He'll continue to battle Charlie Lindgren and Cayden Primeau for a spot behind Carey Price as the Canadiens' backup.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Injured at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven got hurt in Monday's practice session, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

McNiven reportedly took a puck to the face from teammate Shea Weber. The netminder was never going to get into a game for the Habs during the play-in series, so his absence is unlikely to affect any fantasy players.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Up with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven is with the Canadiens as part of the team's Return to Play roster, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

McNiven spent the bulk of the 2019-20 campaign in the ECHL, where he posted a 9-11-2 record in 22 appearances for three different clubs. The 22-year-old netminder will almost certainly be a "practice only" goalie heading into the postseason, which means he'll have no value in playoff pools or DFS contests.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Tending twines in ECHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven has been assigned to the Jacksonville Icemen of the ECHL, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

McNiven, who spent last season with AHL Laval, had been guarding nets for the Adirondack Thunder this season before being reassigned to the Icemen. He's posted a 3-1 record with a 1.75 GAA and .941 save percentage for the Thunder. McNiven has spent brief moments on the bench at the NHL level but has not appeared in a game and is behind Cayden Primeau and Charlie Lindgren on the organization's depth chart.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Bumped down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven was reassigned to AHL Laval on Saturday.

Montreal's top netminder, Carey Price, served a one-game suspension by sitting out against the Devils on Saturday, but McNiven -- who has yet to make his NHL debut -- watched Antti Niemi go the distance in the overtime loss. With Price expected to dress for Sunday's game against the Oilers, there was no need to keep McNiven at the top level. The 21-year-old has a 6-5-2 record, 2.38 GAA and .907 save percentage over 16 games for the AHL's Rocket.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Recalled for second-half opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens recalled McNiven from AHL Laval on Friday.

McNiven will slot in as the backup for Saturday's game against the Devils with Carey Price suspended for skipping the All-Star Game. His stay will likely be a brief one, however, with Price eligible to return Sunday to face the Oilers. Antti Niemi will get the starting nod against New Jersey.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Call-up expected Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven is likely to be called up for Saturday's game against the Devils, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Carey Price has been suspended a game for declining to accept an invitation to play in the All-Star Game. That means Antti Niemi will likely start Saturday, and the Canadiens need to recall a goalie from AHL Laval. McNiven is the most likely candidate because he's still on an entry-level contract and can move freely between the AHL and NHL without being placed on waivers.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Returns to AHL Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven was sent back down to AHL Laval on Wednesday.

With Carey Price coming off injured reserve and ready to make his return following a three-game absence, McNiven's demotion was to be expected. The 21-year-old has yet to appear in an NHL game to this point in his career.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Ascends to hockey's biggest stage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNiven was called up from AHL Laval on Thursday.

McNiven has a 4-4-1 record, 2.56 GAA and .884 percentage over 12 games for the AHL's Rocket this season. The 21-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut, but he'll presumably be on hand for at least the next two games while Carey Price (lower body) is on injured reserve.

Canadiens' Michael McNiven: Recalled by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens recalled McNiven on Friday.

McNiven will likely get some playing time in Montreal's last two preseason contests, but he'll be returned to the minors before the regular-season opener Oct. 5 against Buffalo. The 20-year-old netminder posted impressive numbers in the OHL last season, compiling a 41-9-2 record while registering a 2.30 GAA and .915 save percentage in 54 appearances with the Owen Sound Attack.
