Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Skating with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury is on the ice as part of Phase 2 skates with the Habs.

Fleury made his NHL debut this season and went on to make 41 appearances for Montreal in which he garnered one goal, 45 shots and 102 hits while averaging 14:21 of ice time. The 20-year-old blueliner figures to take on a bigger role with the club heading into the 2020-21 campaign, especially if Christian Folin is allowed to walk in free agency.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montreal assigned Fleury to AHL Laval on Friday.

With Fleury on his way to the minors, the Canadiens are currently only carrying six defensemen on their roster, so he'll likely be back with the big club sooner rather than later. The 21-year-old rookie has managed just one goal while posting a minus-4 rating in 41 appearances with the Habs this season.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Sits out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Golden Knights.

Fleury has been replaced in the lineup the last two games by Brett Kulak. A reason for the lineup change has not been forthcoming, but it's understandable that head coach Claude Julien will sit the rookie blueliner on occasion. Whatever the reason, the two are sharing a spot on the third pairing, so neither player is likely to make a big difference for fantasy owners. Fleury does have 102 hits over 41 games, which may bring value to certain league formats.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Inactive Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury did not dress for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

The 21-year-old Fleury had appeared in 33 of the previous 34 games before taking a seat in the press box for Tuesday's affair in Detroit. Brett Kulak took his spot on the third pairing. Fleury made a mistake that led to a goal in Monday's loss to the Jets, so it appears head coach Claude Julien wanted to give the rookie a break.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Goes home Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury had two shots on goal over 12:03 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

Fleury, who grew up in Calgary, returned home for the first time since donning a Montreal jersey. The 20-year-old defenseman has just one point (a goal) this season and extended his scoreless streak to 14 games in front of friends and family. He made noise early in the season with his physical style, registering at least one hit over the first 17 games while averaging three per game. That pace has dropped off recently. Thursday's game was the fourth in the last nine that he's failed to deliver a hit, and Fleury has just 12 during that stretch.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Healthy scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury was a healthy scratch Thursday because head coach Claude Julien wanted to give the rookie a break, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Julien said Fleury had a tough game against the Bruins on Tuesday -- who didn't in Montreal's 8-1 loss? -- so he reinserted Brett Kulak. Those who have grown accustomed to using Fleury for his physical style -- the 20-year-old has 53 hits over 19 games -- may not have to wait too long for him to be back in the lineup. Kulak finished at minus-3 and got caught up ice on at least one odd-man rush that led to a New Jersey goal.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Leading hitter among rookies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury leads all rookies with 51 hits, averaging three checks per game.

The 21-year-old Fleury looks innocent enough, but he's catching NHL veterans off guard with his ability to hit. He registered 10 thumps in a game earlier this season, and his reputation grew recently after he delivered a first-period hit to Ottawa's Vladislav Namestnikov that forced the seven-year vet to leave Wednesday's game with a lower-body injury. Fleury leads Montreal in hits per game and ranks 30th in the NHL.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Has memorable moment in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Devils. He added two hits and two blocked shots over 13:57 of ice time.

Fleury showed off scoring skills not yet seen to this point in the season. After Phillip Danault won a battle and sent the puck back to the blue line, the 20-year-old rookie skated directly to the net, made one nice move to avoid a Devil, then shifted to his back hand and beat Mackenzie Blackwood. It was the Fleury's first NHL goal and point, coming in his 15th game.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Brings thump to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury recorded 10 hits, three blocked shots and one shot on goal in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

If there's one thing that's marked Fleury's introduction to the NHL, it's the rookie's willingness to make use of his frame. The 20-year-old defenseman has 25 hits over seven games played and leads the team with 3.6 hits per game.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury returned to the lineup Sunday after a one-game absence and had two shots with four hits in a 4-3 loss to the Wild.

Fleury, who missed Saturday's contest with an undisclosed injury, replaced Christian Folin on the third pair. Per usual, the 20-year-old defenseman threw his body around. He's recorded four hits in three of his four games played and has a total of 13 thus far.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Wild, Jessi Pierce of reports.

Fleury picked up an undisclosed injury and was forced to miss Saturday's game against the Blues. As evidenced by this news, he's returned to full health, and will draw into the lineup on the third pair, replacing Christian Folin.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Picks up undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury will miss Saturday's game against the Blues due to an undisclosed injury.

Christian Folin will take Fleury's spot on the third pairing Saturday in St. Louis. Fleury hasn't been able to find a rhythm this season, first sitting out four games as a healthy scratch and now dealing with this injury. His next chance to return to the lineup will come Sunday in Minnesota.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury slotted in on the third pair and had one shot, four hits and three blocked shots over 16:38 of ice time in Thursday's 4-0 win over Minnesota.

Fleury returned from a four-game stint as a healthy scratch and received a season high in playing time. He opened the year as a starter on the third pair with Brett Kulak, but head coach Claude Julien told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette that they did not work well together, and the 20-year-old Fleury looked nervous. It was a different story Thursday. "He was good," Julien said about Fleury after the game. "That was his better game of the three that we've seen him so far. It was nice to see him come in there. He made a couple of good breakout passes there under pressure, which was nice to see. He's a big body, he's physical. He's got a good shot, too. I think the more he gets some confidence there the better you might see that part of it." Fleury is not shy about using his body; he's averaging a team-high three hits per game and 2.3 blocked shots per game.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Could play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury could return to the lineup Thursday against the Wild, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Fleury opened the season as a starter on the third pair before hitting the press box the last four games. However, head coach Claude Julien sounded optimistic of the rookie's chances to play Thursday. "There's a big possibility we'll see him tomorrow. We told him to prepare because there's a possibility. That final decision will be made tomorrow," said Julien. The coach didn't like the combination of the Fleury and Brett Kulak during the first two games of the season, and he's tried different combinations on the third pair since. Montreal is carrying eight defensemen, so it may make sense to send the 20-year-old down to AHL Laval. He's the only one of the bubble defensemen that doesn't have to clear NHL waivers.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: On third pairing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury skated on the third defensive pairing alongside Brett Kulak at Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

The 20-year-old Fleury is expected to start on the third pair for Montreal's preseason finale Saturday against Ottawa and looks like he'll make the opening-night roster. He's made a jump up the depth chart after Noah Juulsen (head) missed all of training camp, and Christian Folin wasn't very good in camp. "I just have to be consistent and keep working on my skating," said Fleury, who is quicker on his skates after dropping 10 pounds during the offseason. He's part of a youth movement that appears to be going on in Montreal. Nick Suzuki, 20, is also expected to join Fleury for next Thursday's regular-season opener against Carolina, and they could be joined by 20-year-old Ryan Poehling, who is making his way back from a concussion. Fleury registered 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) while skating to a minus-16 rating over 60 games at AHL Laval last season.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Makes early impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury was named one of the three stars in Montreal's preseason opener against Ottawa on Monday, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Fleury, who registered an assist, a shot on goal and four hits in the game, is expected to suit up Wednesday against Florida in Bathurst (N.B.). He knows he must continue to play at a top level to make the NHL roster. "The biggest thing in the NHL is consistency," said Fleury. "It's good if you have one good game but in the NHL, you have to be good every night." The 20-year-old blue line prospect is a right-hand shot, which leaves him battling Christian Folin for a spot on the third pair behind Shea Weber and Jeff Petry. While the Habs are likely to carry seven defensemen, Fleury will need to a win a spot in the top six as the team doesn't want a prospect sitting on the bench when he could log minutes at AHL Laval.

Canadiens' Cale Fleury: Inks entry-level deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with the Habs on Thursday.

After racking up 51 points in 68 games in the OHL last season, Fleury has earned a contract from Montreal -- which drafted him in the third round of the 2017 NHL Draft. The 19-year-old figures to spend another year with the Regina Pats, but could see some AHL or NHL action in the final few games of the season once his junior campaign ends.
