  • Canadiens' Justin Barron: Sends assist in win

    Barron notched an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.

  • Canadiens' Justin Barron: Closes gap late

    Barron scored a goal on two shots, blocked three shots, delivered two hits and had a two-minute penalty over 22:12 of ice time in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Vegas.

    The Canadiens pulled the goalie and were pressing to score two goals late when Barron closed the deficit to one. He was positioned in the high slot, stick cocked and ready to fire, and finished a feed from Cole Caufield. The fact he was on the ice in that situation is a telling sign that Montreal head coach Martin St. Louis believes in the offensive potential Barron showed last season (15 points, 39 games). The defenseman has four tallies on 13 shots (30.8 shooting percentage) and five points over 14 games.

  • Canadiens' Justin Barron: Records assist in loss

The two defensemen didn't do much on the play, as Dvorak, with speed through the neutral zone, finished his rush with a beautiful wrister. It was the fourth point in three games for Barron, whose other three points are goals. The 21-year-old, who was drafted in the first round of the 2021 Draft by Colorado, wasn't known for his offense coming up, but Barron has shown flashes in his short time with Montreal.

  • Canadiens' Justin Barron: Flashes offense in win

    Barron scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over Winnipeg. He added two blocked shots, one hit and two PIM over 19:09 of ice time.

    Barron filled the center slot on a rush and went five hole on Laurent Brossoit to even the game at one goal apiece. It was the third goal in four games for Barron, who filled in for Kaiden Guhle after being a healthy scratch the first three games of the season. Guhle returned Saturday, was Barron's partner on the second pair, and had a pair of assists. Barron will remain in the lineup with David Savard (hand) expected out until early December.

    Barron scored a goal on three shots, blocked two shots, delivered four hits and was assessed two penalty minutes over 21:22 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Devils.

    The 21-year-old defender filled in for an injured Kaiden Guhle (upper body) for a third straight game and Barron may stay in the active lineup for a bit. And not only because he scored his second goal in as many games Tuesday. After news broke that David Savard will miss six-to-eight weeks with a broken hand, Barron moved up to the top pair alongside Mike Matheson. When Guhle returns, Barron could stick as a top-four blueliner.

    Barron could make his regular-season debut Saturday in place of an injured Kaiden Guhle (upper body), Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Barron, who opened the season as a healthy scratch for all three games, is prepared to make his debut against Washington. He played well enough in a 39-game sampling last season after being called up from AHL Laval but was not one of the top six defensemen coming out of training camp.
