Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Rises to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was recalled from AHL Laval to the Canadiens' active roster Tuesday as a Black Ace for the playoffs ahead of Game 1 against the Maple Leafs.

Primeau and eight other Rocket teammates were brought up as emergency postseason depth. As it stands, Primeau is the No. 5 netminder on the Habs' depth chart behind Carey Price, Jake Allen, Charlie Lindgren and Michael McNiven, so there's next to no chance he'll dress with the big club before next season.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Headed to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primea was assigned to AHL Laval on Thursday.

Primeau will head to the minors to knock some rust off with a few AHL appearances, but look for him to be recalled by the Canadiens' prior to Thursday's Game 1 versus Toronto.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Falls in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau allowed four goals on 22 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

Dominik Kahun's breakaway goal just 27 seconds into overtime decided this one, dropping the 21-year-old Primeau to 1-2-1 in his four appearances this season. He owns a rough .849 save percentage in this four outings.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Facing Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau will start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game versus Edmonton, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Primeau struggled in his last start Thursday against Toronto, surrendering four goals on just 15 shots before being replaced by Jake Allen at the start of the second period of the eventual 5-2 loss. He'll try to shake off that poor performance and pick up his second win of the year in a tough home matchup with an Oilers team that's 18-7-2 on the road this season.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Chased after first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau stopped 11 of 15 shots in the first period of Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Primeau was replaced by Jake Allen in goal at the start of the second period. The Canadiens' offense couldn't bail out Primeau, who took his second loss in three appearances this season. He's allowed 10 goals on 71 shots in limited action, but the 21-year-old will remain in the backup role until Carey Price (concussion) can return.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau will be between the pipes Thursday in Toronto.

With Carey Price (concussion) dealing with injury and Jake Allen needing a rest, Primeau gets the nod for the third time this season. He'll face a Leafs squad that sits atop the North Division by six points with six games remaining and owns a 16-7-3 record at home.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Wins in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau made 21 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over Ottawa on Saturday.

It was just his second start this season and he improved to 1-1. Carey Price remains out with a concussion and Jake Allen had played in 12 of the previous 14 games. Allen hasn't been especially strong and the Habs need to solidify their hold on a postseason berth. If he can pull off some wins, Primeau will have some late-season value.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Facing Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau will patrol the crease during Saturday's home game versus Ottawa.

Primeau wasn't great in his season debut last Saturday against the Flames, surrendering four goals on 33 shots en route to a 5-2 defeat. He'll attempt to bounce back and secure his first win of the season in a favorable home matchup with a Senators squad that's 8-17-0 on the road this year.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Downed in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau stopped 29 of 33 shots Saturday in a 5-2 loss to Calgary.

The 21-year-old was making his first NHL appearance of the season after spending most of the year with AHL Laval. Three straight Calgary goals late in the first period and into the opening minutes of the middle frame proved to be the difference, with two of those goals coming off the stick of Johnny Gaudreau. Montreal's seventh-round pick in 2017, Primeau got into a pair of games last season with the Canadiens and owns a .914 save percentage in his three NHL starts.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Starting against Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau will guard the road goal in Saturday's game versus the Flames, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Primeau will make his season debut with the big club. The 21-year-old started two games last season, recording a .931 save percentage and a 1-1-0 record. The Flames are an intriguing matchup for the 21-year-old netminder, as they enter Saturday's game ranked 23rd with 2.63 goals per game.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Recalled on emergency basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was recalled on an emergency basis Tuesday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

Primeau will likely serve as Jake Allen's backup for Wednesday's game against Edmonton. Carey Price (upper body) left Monday's game against the Oilers after the first period and it seems like he'll miss at least one game. Primeau is sporting a .911 save percentage and 2.07 GAA in 14 AHL games but hasn't seen any NHL action this season.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Back to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was assigned to the taxi squad Saturday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Carey Price (upper body) started Saturday's game versus the Senators, so Primeau's presence on the active roster is no longer necessary. Primeau has not made his season debut for the Canadiens.

April 16, 2021 11:48 AM
Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was added to Montreal's active roster Friday.

Carey Price is still sidelined with an upper-body injury, so Primeau will join the active roster and serve as Jake Allen's backup for Friday's game versus the Flames. The 21-year-old netminder has yet to see any NHL action this season.

April 15, 2021 08:48 PM
Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Rises to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was assigned to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

Primeau continues to bounce between levels with Carey Price (upper body) out. The 21-year-old Primeau would likely return to AHL Laval more permanently once Price can play again.

April 14, 2021 10:36 PM
Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Reassigned to AHL Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was reassigned to AHL Laval on Wednesday.

Primeau heading back to the minors likely indicates Carey Price (upper body) is nearing a return. The 21-year-old Primeau didn't play while he was with the big club.

April 14, 2021 11:16 AM
Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Will join active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau will be promoted to Montreal's active roster to serve as Jake Allen's backup Wednesday versus Calgary, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

The Canadiens have a back-to-back set versus the Flames and Senators coming up on Friday and Saturday, so if Carey Price (upper body) still isn't ready to return, Primeau could get a start in goal this weekend.

April 13, 2021 09:44 PM
Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Drops to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was assigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Primeau should rise back to the active roster for Wednesday's game against the Flames, as Carey Price (upper body) isn't expected to be ready in time. Jake Allen is the projected starter for that contest.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Backup role Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was added to the active roster for Monday's game against Toronto.

Primeau served as the backup behind Jake Allen while Carey Price (upper body) remains out. The 21-year-old will likely be sent back to the taxi squad Tuesday.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Drops to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was designated for the taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Carey Price (upper body) isn't expected to be ready for Monday's game versus the Maple Leafs; Primeau likely will be called back up to the active roster to serve as Jake Allen's backup in that contest.

Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Primeau was promoted to the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus the Jets, per CBS Sports.

Primeau served as Jake Allen's backup in the 5-0 loss to the Jets. The 21-year-old Primeau has just two NHL appearances under his belt, so it would likely take drastic circumstances for him to enter a game, even with Carey Price (upper body) out.
