  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Makes impact in preseason debut

    Caufield scored a goal on five shots and picked up an assist in Wednesday's preseason win over the Senators.

The forward scored 26 goals on 158 shots (16.5 shooting percentage) over 46 games before a shoulder injury ended his season prematurely. He's expected to occupy a spot on the first line along with captain Nick Suzuki this coming season.

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Signs eight-year deal

    Caufield (shoulder) agreed to terms on an eight-year, $62.8 million contract with Montreal on Monday.

In his first three years in the NHL, the Wisconsin native racked up 53 goals and 31 assists in 123 contests (.68 points per game).

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Separates shoulder twice

    Caufield separated his shoulder twice this season, once before Christmas versus Dallas and finally versus Nashville on Jan. 12, Eric Engels of reports.

    Caufield managed to play five more games after the Predators contest before the Canadiens shut him down for the season. He was able to pop his shoulder back into place both times, but it was eventually determined that Caufield would require season-ending surgery. The surgery will occur Feb. 1 as final details are still being sorted out. Caufield had already set a career high in goals with 26 and had 36 points in 46 games. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in September.

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Lights lamp twice on power play

    Caufield scored two power-play goals, including the game-winner, in Thursday's 4-3 victory over the Predators.

    Both goals came on one-timers that beat Yaroslav Askarov, who was making his first NHL start and got a rude introduction to the speed of the game at its highest level. Caufield hasn't recorded an assist in a remarkable 22 straight games, but he's doing just fine as a sniper, finding the back of the net six times on 26 shots (23.1 percent) over the last six contests. On the season, the 22-year-old is up to 25 goals, but only 34 points, through 42 games.

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Two goals in loss

    Caufield scored twice Saturday in a 9-2 loss to Washington.

    His first was a one-timer from the left face-off circle during a 4-on-3 power play in the second. It was his 20th goal of the season. The second came later that frame when he stole the puck from the Caps' Lars Eller and beat Charlie Lindgren on a breakaway. Caufield (37 games) is the first Canadiens player to score 20 goals in 37 or fewer games since Martin Rucinsky (37) and Brian Savage (37) each did it in 1995-96.

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Used on second line in loss

    Caufield skated on the second line in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Stars. He had three shots on goal over 16:33 of ice time in the loss.

    Caufield's normally part of the top line, but he was moved to the second line while struggling wingers Joel Armia and Jonathan Drouin bookended Nick Suzuki on the top line. It's unclear if the alignment will stick when the Canadiens return from their holiday break Wednesday in Tampa Bay.

The 21-year-old is up to 19 tallies, 28 points, 108 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 32 contests. He's in good form and is a fixture on the Canadiens' top line.

    Caufield was on the ice after leaving the Canadiens' previous game with an upper-body injury. The TOI was nearly two minutes more than his season average, so it looks like Caufield will be good to go Thursday, when the Ducks visit Montreal.

    Caufield was forced to leave Monday's matchup with the Flames due to his upper-body injury but appears to have avoided anything serious. With the 21-year-old winger in the lineup, he will look to get back to his scoring way after having bent the twine in four of his last six contests.
