  • Canadiens' Jesse Ylonen: Goes from bench to hero

  • Canadiens' Jesse Ylonen: Two-goal surprise

    Ylonen scored twice Thursday in a 6-5 loss to Vegas.

    Ylonen did a lot with 7:22 of ice time -- he wired four shots and laid one hit, and showed off his quick hands and great release on both snipes. His first was especially sharp -- he fired a wrist shot that beat Adin Hill glove side on a second-period breakaway. Ylonen is a young speedster whose ice time has dropped below 10 minutes a night after he sat in the press box early in November. He has potential, but right now, he's not getting the right ice to show off his skills.

  • Canadiens' Jesse Ylonen: Takes advantage of turnover

    Ylonen scored a goal on one shot and blocked a shot over 11:01 of ice time in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Toronto.

    Montreal's fourth line was responsible for two of the team's five goals and showed an opportunistic flair in doing so. Maple Leafs defenseman Timothy Liljegren misfired on an attempted clear, and Rafael Harvey-Pinard pounced on the loose puck. Harvey-Pinard fed Ylonen for the Canadiens' final score. Ylonen showed an offensive flair and skated on the top line at times in 2022-23. That may not repeat itself this season, but both he and Harvey-Pinard made an impression on head coach Martin St. Louis during their first significant taste of the NHL last season.

    Ylonen will not be in action against the Lightning on Tuesday due to illness.
