Top Juraj Slafkovsky News

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Ready to rock

    Slafkovsky (lower body) will be available for the start of training camp, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

    Slafkovsky's rookie campaign in 2022-23 was cut short due to a lower-body injury in mid-January. In 39 outings last season, he earned four goals, six assists and 53 hits. Slafkovsky will compete for a middle-six role during camp.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Officially shut down

    Slafkovsky (lower body) has been officially ruled out for the remainder of the season, Eric Engels of reports Monday.

    Slafkovsky was a long shot to get back into action before the end of the campaign based on his initial three-month recovery timeline. The 19-year-old rookie notched four goals and six assists, including two power-play points, in 39 games this season. The 2022 first-overall pick will no doubt be eager to play a full 82-game season next year and should be capable of pushing for 25-30 points if he can stay healthy.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Likely done for the year

    Slafkovsky is expected to be sidelined for three months with a lower-body injury that won't require surgery.

    Slafkovsky will almost certainly miss the rest of the regular season, and with the Canadiens sitting in last place in the Atlantic Divison, fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see the No. 1 overall pick from the 2022 Entry Draft back in action until the 2023-24 campaign. If that ends up being the case, Slafkovsky will finish his rookie season having picked up four goals, 10 points and a minus-13 rating while averaging 12:13 of ice time through 39 appearances.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Designated for injured reserve

    Slafkovsky (lower body) landed on injured reserve Monday.

    Slafkovsky is currently stuck in a 15-game pointless streak dating back to Dec. 14 against Ottawa while also having failed to score in 21 straight outings. With Joel Armia (upper body) and Jake Evans (lower body) also going on IR, the team has recalled Rafael Harvey-Pinard and Rem Pitlick from the minors to fill out the lineup. The team hasn't provided any specifics on when Slafkovsky might be cleared to return, so fantasy players should consider him out indefinitely at this point.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Notches assist in loss

    Slafkovsky had an assist, one shot on goal, one hit and two penalty minutes in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.

    Slafkovsky was the secondary helper on Kirby Dach's goal, initiating a third-period comeback that Montreal could not complete. It was his second consecutive game with an assist, and the rookie has five points over the last seven contests. Slafkovsky's offensive skills are no longer being wasted on the fourth line.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Logs assist in win

    Slafkovsky had an assist, three shots on goal and four hits over a season-high 15:22 of ice time in Monday's 2-1 shootout win over Calgary.

    Slafkovsky cycled away from defenders in the corner, stalling until a play could be made, and found Josh Anderson at the crease for the game-tying goal in the third period. The rookie forward skated on the third line and will provide depth offense for Montreal, which is dealing with injuries to several forwards. It was the fourth point in six games for Slafkovsky, whose days on the fourth line may be over.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Produces helper

    Slafkovsky registered an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Slafkovsky helped out on Josh Anderson's game-winning marker early in the second period. Over the last seven games, Slafkovsky has a goal and three assists -- it looks like he's getting more comfortable while seeing third-line minutes. The rookie winger is up to eight points, 25 shots, 19 hits, 23 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 21 outings.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Scores fourth goal of season

    Slafkovsky scored a goal in Montreal's 2-1 win against Calgary on Thursday.

    Slafkovsky has four goals, six points and 23 PIM in 18 games this season. Entering Thursday's contest, he was averaging just 11:00 of ice time, but that includes 1:04 on the power play. His overall minimal role clearly limits his current fantasy value, but the fact that he's being used on the power play does keep things interesting.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: At Monday's practice

    Slafkovsky was at Monday's practice after briefly leaving Friday's game following a hard hit, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Slafkovsky was forced to leave the bench Friday before returning. He did not get on the ice after returning to the bench. He apparently cleared the NHL's concussion protocol, although the hit looked high on the body but not to the head. Given his presence at practice Monday, Slafkovsky is expected to play Tuesday against the Sharks.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Briefly leaves Friday

    Slafkovsky briefly left Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Chicago in the third period after taking a hit from Jason Dickinson, but he eventually returned to the bench, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    The hit was high on the body, and no penalty was called. Slafkovsky returned to the bench with about a minute remaining in regulation but didn't take a shift. The Canadiens have three days off before next playing Tuesday at home against the Sharks, which gives the rookie ample time to recover.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Back to fourth line

    Slafkovsky had an assist, one shot one goal, one hit and one blocked shot over 10:20 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

    Slafkovsky had a hand in Arber Xhekaj's third-period, game-tying goal. It was the rookie's second assist of the season, both coming in the last four contests. After one game on the second line, Slafkovsky was back on the familiar fourth line, but he remained part of the power play.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Moves up to second line

    Slafkovsky had two shots on goal, one blocked shot and two penalty minutes over 14:22 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Buffalo.

He also was given a season-high 4:23 on the second power-play unit. The 18-year-old has three goals and one assist through 14 games but has shown offense from the lowest line with a 15.8 shooting percentage.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Finishes serving suspension

    Slafkovsky has finished serving his two-game suspension for boarding Detroit's Matt Luff (wrist).

    Slafkovsky received a major penalty and game misconduct for boarding at 14:28 of the third period during Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win against Detroit. Luff will undergo surgery Thursday and is expected to miss 10-12 weeks as a result of the incident. Slafkovsky has three goals in 10 games this season while averaging 11:02 of ice time. He'll be eligible to return Nov. 15 against New Jersey.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Set for hearing with league

    Slafkovsky will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for boarding Detroit's Matt Luff (wrist).

    Slafkovsky was ejected from Wednesday's game with Detroit after the boarding call and appears set to miss some more time. With Luff sustaining a long-term injury as a result, Slafkovsky could be facing a multi-game suspension. Assuming Slafkovsky won't play against Vancouver on Wednesday, Michael Pezzetta figures to step into the lineup while Sean Monahan could see additional power-play minutes.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Booted for boarding

    Slafkovsky was assessed a five-minute boarding penalty and game misconduct during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings and could face further punishment, Erik Leijon of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Slafkovsky sent Matt Luff into the boards with about five minutes left in the third period, and the Red Wing immediately left the ice. The hit was similar to the one teammate Josh Anderson delivered to Vegas' Alex Pietrangelo on Saturday, which cost him two games.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Scores in loss

    Slafkovsky scored a goal on three shots and blocked a shot over 11:34 of ice time in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Vegas.

    Slafkovsky finished off the scoring with just under five minutes remaining in the third period. It was the rookie's third goal in nine games played, an encouraging sign for a team in need of depth scoring. He's playing primarily on the fourth line as head coach Martin St. Louis eases the 18-year-old into the NHL, but Slafkovsky has proven capable of providing secondary scoring nonetheless. Slafkovsky told Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette that he's learning to find more opportunities to shoot. He has just nine shots on net but fired a season-high three Saturday.
