Canadiens' Christian Dvorak: Runs point streak to four

Dvorak scored a goal on one shot and added two PIM in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Florida.

Canadiens' Christian Dvorak: Activated, playing Thursday

Dvorak (upper body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against visiting Dallas. Dvorak missed 19 games with the injury but is finally able to return for his first game action under new head coach Martin St. Louis. With 16 points in 34 games this year, Dvorak likely won't be knocking off his career-high 38 set back in 2019-20 with the Coyotes. That said, he's flashed some scoring prowess this season -- posting four points in his last four games and a six-in-six streak back in November -- so it'll be interesting to see what he can do in the final seven weeks of the campaign.

Canadiens' Christian Dvorak drawing trade interest

When the Montreal Canadiens lost Phillip Danault and Jesperi Kotkaniemi in quick succession, the decision they made on how to fill the hole at center came with some controversy. Despite some questions about how well the team would play in 2021-22 without the likes of Danault, Shea Weber, and Carey Price, the team used a first- and second-round pick to acquire Christian Dvorak from the Arizona Coyotes. While this season’s complete collapse wasn’t expected, spending futures was certainly a risk with the Canadiens’ recent regular-season struggles.
