Habs Quick Hits - August 11
Minor news and updates concerning your Montreal Canadiens:
- Jarred Tinordi continues his progress towards locking down a spot on Team USA for this winter's World Junior Championships. He was held off the scoresheet in all regards in a 4-1 loss to Sweden yesterday, but will again be paired with Adam Clendening (what appears to be penciled in as the Americans' third pairing for the upcoming tournament) for a game against Finland today.
- Andrei Kostitsyn has apparently sounded off to a Belarussian hockey site about Habs head coach Jacques Martin. Kostitsyn feels he does not have a good relationship with the coach and did not understand why he kept being put on third and/or fourth lines last year - something he felt was the cause of dip in his play. Story: http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=373617. Sounds like he'll look forward to hitting the open market as a UFA next summer if he is even around that long.
- For those familiar with the Boucher Scouting System website, check out a one-game review of Brendan Gallagher's play at Team Canada's recent WJC Camp: http://www.boucherscouting.com/2011/08/habs-one-game-scouting-report-for_10.html.
