BREAKING: Canadiens Make Several Roster Moves and Joshua Roy's Fate is Confirmed

In recent hours, there have been significant moves within the Montreal Canadiens organization. Mitchell Stephens was placed on waivers, and defenseman Justin Barron was sent to Laval.

These decisions by General Manager Kent Hughes suggest a few things, including the imminent return of forward Tanner Pearson to the lineup.

Moreover, the fact that Joshua Roy was spared from these recent roster changes indicates that he is now a regular player for the Canadiens, at least for the time being.

The 20-year-old Quebec native seems to have secured his spot in the top-9, having developed good chemistry with veteran Sean Monahan. In his five NHL games so far, he has scored a goal and an assist.


After his first two games where he appeared to be finding his footing, Roy quickly demonstrated that he could provide an interesting offensive touch to the Canadiens, especially in the absence of several key players.

Currently, he has certainly earned the right to remain with the CH for another week.
