Hoffman entered Tuesday's action logging just 14:54 of ice time per game this season, but he averaged 19:55 over four outings from Jan. 21-28 and received 20:49 versus Ottawa.

Canadiens' Rafael Harvey-Pinard: Nets two goals Tuesday
Harvey-Pinard scored two goals in a 5-4 loss to Ottawa on Tuesday.
Harvey-Pinard's goals came in the third period. His first marker tied the contest at 3-3, and his second goal evened the score at 4-4, but Montreal couldn't capitalize on those efforts.

Anderson has 14 goals and 19 points in 49 contests in 2022-23. Entering Tuesday's action, Anderson had gone 18 straight games without an assist, though he did provide six goals over that span.

Canadiens' Jesse Ylonen: Sent down Tuesday
Ylonen was reassigned to AHL Laval on Tuesday.
Ylonen has produced two assists and a minus-4 rating through 10 contests this season.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Back to AHL
Belzile was reassigned to AHL Laval on Tuesday.

Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Still out Tuesday
Edmundson (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game versus the Senators, Guillaume Lefrancois of La Presse reports.
Edmundson will miss his second straight game with the injury. There's been little information on a timeline for the defenseman's return, so it's unclear if he'll be ready to go following the All-Star break -- the Canadiens' next game is Feb. 11 versus the Islanders.... See More ... See Less

Canadiens' Sam Montembeault: Zero help from teammates
Montembeault made 31 saves Saturday in a 5-0 loss to Ottawa. He allowed four goals.
Montembeault kept his mates in the game most of the night, and the score was 3-0 and within reach until Mathieu Joseph banked in an empty-net shortie at 18:34. This loss wasn't on the 26-year-old -- he can't do everything. Montreal plays Ottawa at home Tuesday, and that start will likely go to Jake Allen.... See More ... See Less

Beck, the 33rd overall pick in the 2022 Draft, had 19 goals and 25 assists in 37 OHL games this season. He'll likely debut in a bottom-six spot, but Beck's offensive potential could quickly lead to an increased role on a rebuilding Montreal team.... See More ... See Less

Beck was recalled from OHL Peterborough under emergency conditions Friday.
Beck will join the team in Ottawa on Saturday but it's unclear if he'll make his NHL debut just yet. The 18-year-old has 44 points in 37 OHL contests this season after being selected in the second round of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.... See More ... See Less
