This means it is only a matter of time until the Canadiens core of veterans are […]

Habs Flex Their Cap; Acquire Mason and Parts From Jets

The Canadiens have dealt Simon Bourque, a minor league defenseman, to the Jets for Joel Armia, Steve Mason, a 7th round pick in 2019 and a 4th round pick in 2020.
