Whatever happened to Danny Masse and Oliver Fortier? Weren't they both drafted and signed by the Habs. I have been looking around but I don't see them on the AHL or ECHL rosters with both Hamilton and Cincinnati. I knew Danny Masse had knee surgery and Oliver Fortier had shoulder injury.

Were these injuries season ending? Can anyone shed some light on these two players. Thanks.

When Fortier had his surgery, they said he was out for up to 6 months, maybe he could play in March/April but they might just put him aside for the whole season and make him ready for next season.

Massé was out for 4-6 months after the surgery. On The Hamilton Spectator they said around Christmas, so I'd say he will be assigned to Cincinnati this month unless the rehab didn't go well.

Thanks for the info.

Just read through some of Steven Hindle's articles on the Habs prospects. An interesting read indeed, he breaks down all positions and paints a decent protrait of the Habs' future.

Not quite sure why he's writing on HockeyBuzz, but he's nothing like Eklund.

Enjoy!

Interesting read but IMO he's overrating a bunch of guys... or it's me who underrates them :lol:

I'm assuming that Olivier Fortier was given David Desharnais's spot on the Hamilton roster while he's gone.Short stay for Desharnais but long enough for Fortier to leave his mark with a hattrick and an assist in one game.The Habs have some really good prospects coming through the ranks and many of them will be playing wingman if they are planning a long stay.With the strength at Center being so deep, having wingers that can play center will just add to the Habs overall power through their team.A few years ago Pre-Gainey the Habs were remarkably thin through the lineup in both Center and right-handed defencemen these problems have definitely been taken care of whether by trades or shrewd drafting but no longer are a problem as they once were.The overall talent level in the Habs system would have most GM's in the NHL jealous.Pierre Gauthier isn't jealous he's just quietly sifting through all the potential UFA's and unsigned hockey prospects that his "Scouting Crew" unearths in their relentless pursuit of the best available prospect waiting to Wear the Bleu,Blanc et Rouge. Go Habs Go!

I go to a lot of Hamilton Bulldog games and there is no shortage of talent with the Habs at forward or in goal.The defence in Hamilton is a little thin but both Subban and Webber have come through here.JT Wyman is a name I am hoping to hear as being called up next.6'3" and over 200 lbs.Is not afraid to get his nose dirty in front of the net,Dustin Boyd came into Hamilton guns ablazing but has quieted down a little bit,14 goals in 14 games.Desharnais won't be coming back down thanks to PG dumping Max Lapierre.Ryan White also looks like he is ready and if Auld can't perform there is always Curtis Sanford a quality backup for Carey Price.

Habs Future

posted by Mike Boone at 10h33 EST on Feb 21

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) takes his weekly look at players in the Canadiens system.

THREE STARS

1. C Michaël Bournival had an impressive week to become the first star, scoring five goals for the team he captains, the Shawinigan Cataractes. Bournival's offensive contributions were mostly complementary during the week, adding the 5th goal of a 5-2 win on Wednesday night and the 2nd goal in a 7-3 loss on Saturday night, but soundly delivered a win on Friday night when he registered a hat trick. Bournival recorded the 1st, 3rd and 5th goals of the game to bring about a 5-3 victory. Bournival's five goals raised him to 28 on his season, four better than his best career mark and a career-best 64 points. Bournival is 16th overall in league scoring in the QMJHL. Bournival was drafted in the 3rd round, 71st overall in the 2010 Entry Draft by Colorado, who traded him to the Canadiens for Ryan O'Byrne.

2. C Louis Leblanc snapped his scoring slump in impressive fashion this week with the Montreal Juniors, scoring three goals and adding three assists, with points in all three of his games to help his team towards a perfect week. Leblanc scored the initial goal of a 3-goal comeback with his team in a 4-3 victory on Thursday night, added a goal and assist on Friday night in a 5-2 win, then had a goal and two assists in a 7-1 win on Saturday as his team completed an intense three game in three night schedule. Leblanc's scoring outburst has him back as the leader in points per game at 1.1. Leblanc was drafted in the 1st round, 18th overall in the 2009 Entry Draft.

3. D Greg Pateryn recorded his finest single-game points performance of his NCAA career, scoring a goal and three assists on Friday night. Pateryn assisted on the first two goals of the game, scored the 3rd and then assisted on the 4th and eventual game-winning goal in what became a 6-3 victory for the University of Michigan Wolverines, where Pateryn is playing in his third year with the team. Pateryn's scoring exploits have placed him with three goals and eleven assists on his season, more goals and assists than he had in his two previous seasons at Michigan combined. Pateryn was drafted in the 5th round, 128th overall in the 2008 Entry Draft, and obtained from Toronto in the trade that sent Mikhail Grabovski to the Leafs.

Nice to see the prospects are playing up to their potential.

Ok this fan forum is waaaayy too big and very confusing. How about some open and uncensored chat? I love the Canadiens,but there are definate problems with our favorite team,and this site just "poo-poos" any concerns which are "deemed" negative from one,or two,people. Although the Canadiens philosophy of speed and skill is right on in my opinion, as far as the way to play hockey the right way. I think we need some players that can "push-back" when the need arrives. I don't mean guys who can just go toe-to-toe with other goons. The Montreal Canadiens do have the resources to acquire guys who can not only "push back", but "BURY" goons,such as the Bruins,so that the rest of the skill guys can do their thing without having to be distracted. Ive already seen Evgeny Artyukhin take out Chara with one hand and knock the (you know what) out of guys like Lucic,Thornton,Mcquaid, etc..So go out and get him,and how about Mitch Fritz? Fritzy has been itching to go after Chara for years! Ive seen him "toy" with big George Laroque. Yes the fast,shifty,skill guys are great,we cant win the cup without 'em,but the reason we keep losing guys like Markov and Gorges is because we keep getting run over by goons. C'mon Mr. Molson, lets crank it up a few notches!!!We need about 5 (five) honest to goodness a**-kickers!!! Go Habs!!

The Habs have that many (five) in Hamilton,actually Ryan White has gotten the call already.The need for quality forwards reared it's head after taking DD and Pacioretty the Bulldogs were severely depleted.Forwards are a definite need in the farm system,hopefully with 1st line potential.

I'm hoping someone can explain the GM's reasoning here. Boyd and Dawes are gone to the KHL and K2 is gone too. Every old school hockey fan is getting so fed up with the lack of scoring on the Habs and the inability to find someone a la Camy with size. We seem to finally have a netminder that looks to be staying with the organization and is one of the best (as long as he can keep his head clear). Our defense has improved with the attitude of P.K. and hopefully the organization won't kill his spirit as it is the irritation and jubilation that we need to get under the arrogance of other teams like Philly and certainly the dirty whiny Bruins. But why let these three great prospects go? Kristo is talented but small and with the defensive losses we had this year, shouldn't we keep the talent we have in the system instead of going for one year contracts that don't assure anything? Very frustrating to see these one shot deals go forward with limited upside. Any responses could help me understand as I've lost faith after 17 years...

If they have signed contracts in Europe before their NHL contracts were even over, it's because they wanted to, not because we told them to leave or something.

Question here:

Does anybody know what happened to David Fischer?

He was our first pick in 2006, and is apparently now playing in the ECHL.

Is he still with the organization?

plays for my local echl team, florida everblades, last time i checked (which was in the last season). lol.
