Joshua Roy recall will add a bit of intrigue to Saturday’s game but it’s a bit too soon IMO. He has good AHl numbers so far but you don’t want to rush prospects just because the guys in the NHL are offensively inept.

And it’s a transaction we’ve all been waiting for.
The Canadiens have recalled forward Joshua Roy from the Laval Rocket. He’ll join the team Saturday morning.

The Quebec forward was having a good time down there. Indeed, in his team’s most recent win, he didn’t collect a point, but he took three shots on net and played a good game overall.
Roy won’t be sleeping long tonight, as he’ll be joining the big club tomorrow morning and is expected to face the Edmonton Oilers at the Bell Centre.
Details to follow…
I can’t wait to see him in action. This will be the winger’s first NHL regular-season game. He’ll face Connor McDavid and his team, who are on a nine-game winning streak.
Now, will he be used on the top-6 or will he have a slightly more defensive role in his debut? We’ll know more at tomorrow’s training session.
