Top Kirby Dach News

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Set for camp

    Dach (upper body) will be ready to take part in training camp, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

    Dach, who sat out the final eight games of the 2022-23 campaign, notched 14 goals and 38 points in 58 appearances last season. He will compete for a top-six role and a spot on Montreal's first power-play unit during camp.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Will miss at least a week

    Dach (upper body) will be sidelined for at least one week.

    The Canadiens' final game of the campaign is in two weeks, so Dach could end up missing the rest of the season with his upper-body injury. If that ends up coming to fruition, the 22-year-old forward would finish the year having collected 14 goals and 38 points through 58 appearances.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Not playing Tuesday

    Dach (upper body) won't play Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    Dach earned two goals and one assist in four outings after returning from a 16-game absence. He had been out with a lower-body injury. He has registered 38 points, 107 shots on goal and 53 hits in 58 contests this campaign. Dach will be replaced in the lineup by Chris Tierney, who was originally going to be a healthy scratch because of the NHL debut of Sean Farrell.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Logs two points in loss

    Dach logged two power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- and had three shots on net over 24:00 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Boston.

    Positioned at the side of the net, Dach finished off a perfect feed from Mike Matheson for his 14th goal of the season -- fifth on the power play -- and his second tally in as many games. He's produced three points overall in the two games since returning from a 16-game absence due to a lower-body injury. With Josh Anderson (ankle) done for the season, players like Dach will be looked on to take up some offensive slack. He's reborn with the Canadiens after the first-round pick stumbled in Chicago; Dach has a career-high 36 points (14 on the power play) over 55 games for Montreal.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Scores upon return

    Dach scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Lightning. He added one hit and one blocked shot over 20:44 of ice time.

    Dach returned to the ice after missing 16 games with a lower-body injury. The 22-year-old made an impact early, scoring his 13th goal midway through the first period. He was back on the top line, which has changed frequently of late, along with Nick Suzuki and Rafael Harvey-Pinard.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Playing against Lightning

    Dach (lower body) will be back in the lineup versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday, Luc Gelinas of reports.

    Dach returns following a 16-game stint on the sidelines due to his lower-body problem. Prior to his absence, the natural center was rolling with six goals and five assists over his previous 13 contests, including four power-play points. With his return to the lineup, Dach is set to retake a first-line role and should be in the mix for a power-play spot as well.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Still no timeline to return

    Dach (lower body) remains out indefinitely.

    Dach has been out since Feb. 16, and it's unclear at this point if he'll be back before the end of the regular season. Until he returns to the ice, it's safe to assume Dach will remain out.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Out indefinitely

    Dach (lower body) won't travel with the Canadiens and is considered out indefinitely.

    Dach is likely to be out at least until March 7 versus the Hurricanes, though the indefinite label is concerning. The 22-year-old has already missed five games and will likely add four more to that total before he could potentially return.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Still unavailable

    Dach (lower body) won't play Saturday versus the Senators, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Dach is set for a fifth straight absence due to an illness that stemmed from a lower-body injury. The 22-year-old hasn't resumed skating yet, so it's unclear when he might return to the Canadiens' lineup. They begin a road trip Tuesday in San Jose, and he could be ruled out for the trip if head coach Martin St. Louis updates Dach's status before the team heads west.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Won't play Tuesday

    Dach (illness) will not travel with the team for Tuesday's road clash with the Devils, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Despite not making the initial trip with the team, Dach could still link up with the Hab ahead of Friday's matchup with the Flyers. It will be the third straight game on the shelf for Dach due to his lingering illness. Prior to his absence, the 22-year-old center was performing well with four goals and two assists in his last seven contests, including a pair of power-play goals.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Won't play Saturday

    Dach (illness) skated briefly Saturday morning but won't play Saturday per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Dach is still dealing with an illness that kept him out of Thursday's game in Carolina and he'll now miss a second game. The 22-year-old Dach has a career best 35 points (12 goals, 23 assists) through 54 games this season. Alex Belzile will move up to the second line in Dach's absence.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Dealing with illness

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Sends game into OT

    Dach scored a goal on his lone shot in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders. He added three hits and one blocked shot over 19:29 of ice time.

    Dach's goal was a redirect of a Mike Matheson pass that eluded Semyon Varlamov to the far side. It tied the game at 3-3 and set up overtime. The tally was Dach's second in two games and gave him five points (four goals) over the last five contests. After a stretch on the top line earlier this season ignited his offense, Dach's turned himself into a competent second-line point-producer that doesn't need the comfy confines of the team's most gifted offensive talents.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Continues scoring run

    Dach logged a short-handed assist and one shot on goal over 17:37 of ice time in Sunday's 6-2 win over Edmonton.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Assists on shortie

    Dach carried the puck through the neutral zone and over the blue line before slipping a pass to Rafael Harvey-Pinard for a shorthanded marker that tied the game, 2-2. He's been Montreal's most prolific point producer of late, registering nine points (five goals, four assists) over the last 10 games. He has a career-high 32 points and counting. The former Blackhawk, who was selected third overall in 2019, has unlocked the offense in his first season with the Canadiens.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Two helpers in Tuesday's win

    Dach picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Jets.

    He helped set up Mike Hoffman's game-winner in the second period and Josh Anderson's insurance tally in the third. Dach has already set a new career high with 29 points this season in 45 games, and while the 21-year-old hasn't become a consistent force yet in his first season with Montreal, he continues to flash the upside that made him the third overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.
