A significant change has just been confirmed within the Montreal Canadiens lineup due to Joshua Roy's injury.

Good news has finally been confirmed for Rafaël Harvey-Pinard; he will replace Roy on the team's second line.

"RHP will take Roy's place on the second line.

Pearson IN for Roy.


Montembeault in goal." - Anthony Martineau.

The CH's number 49 has had a difficult season offensively. In addition to suffering two major injuries during the season, RHP has only scored one goal and eight points in 31 games.

This is a stark contrast to his performance of 14 goals and 20 points last year.

However, this significant drop can be justified by an obvious reason, he is no longer used in the team's top-6 as he was last season, when he even played with Nick Suzuki.

It's much more difficult to produce when a third of your playing time is on the penalty kill and you have to play with Colin White and Jesse Ylonen.

We are eager to see if the Saguenay native will be able to find his touch near the net with an offensive line.
