Paul Byron makes room for Tyler Pitlick in the lineup tonight

Since arriving in Montreal, Paul Byron has always been a key player for CH. While not an elite player, he consistently offered excellent hockey in a more limited role, whether that was scoring goals coupling or play good defensive hockey.

Not to mention its pretty impressive speed.

In 2021/22, on the other hand, it was much more difficult for Ti Paul. After missing the first half of the season following hip surgery last summer, Byron never seemed to find his way this season.

Aside from his hip, Byron has also suffered a few minor injuries this season. For this reason too, he will be absent tonight, he who, according to Martin St-Louis, is “a bit chaotic”. Tyler Pitlick will take his place in the lineup.

The other squad change comes as no surprise as Samuel Montembeault will be in the net. Obviously, Cayden Primeau has not been recalled, meaning Carey Price should be the backup goalkeeper tonight.

It also means Corey Schueneman, who was guilty of an error that led to the Islanders’ first goal yesterday, remains in the line-up. On this subject, the St-Louis declaration is very relevant and I fully agree with it.

Although I would like to see William Lageson Jordan Harris back in the lineup but…

Coming back to Byron, it really is a year to forget in his case. Injuries overwhelmed him and he was completely invisible on the ice.

The #41 will celebrate its 33rd birthday in around ten days. Will he bounce back next year or will age finally get the better of him? I hope this will be the first option.

In short, we’ll see if the recovery can do Byron good and help him come back strong by the end of the season (13 days from now).
