Kirby Dach News
Montreal Canadiens forward Kirby Dach (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against Tampa Bay. The 22-year-old has been out of action for 16 games, but he's now finally ready to return from a lower-body problem. Dach has done well on a struggling team, registering 12 goals and 23 assists in 54 appearances. He's set to skate on the first line with Nick Suzuki and Rafael Harvey-Pinard, and the talented forward should also see action with the first power-play unit. Montreal will also welcome back Brendan Gallagher (lower body), who has been unavailable since Jan. 3.
Montreal Canadiens forward Kirby Dach (illness) will miss a second consecutive game Saturday versus the Maple Leafs. He is sidelined for the first time this season after falling sick earlier in the week. The 22-year-old has done well during his first year in Canada, recording 12 goals and 23 assists in 54 games with 99 shots on goal, 46 hits and 36 blocked shots. His next chance to return comes on Tuesday versus New Jersey. Alex Belzile has joined the top six in Dach's absence.
Montreal Canadiens forward Kirby Dach netted two goals Wednesday night, helping the team beat Vancouver 5-2. He ended up with the game-winning goal and also had the team's final tally. Dach was plus-two for the game and finished with four shots overall while adding one hit to his stat line in 17:16 of action. The 21-year-old is now on a nice run of nine points in six games. The Canadiens simply don't want to lie down and Dach is having a great start to the campaign, with four goals and eight assists to his name in 14 games. He has secured a spot on the top line and also skates on the first power-play unit, so fantasy managers should really consider picking him up.
The Montreal Canadiens have signed center Kirby Dach to a four-year, $13.45 million contract. After recently trading for the 21-year-old center, the Canadiens decided he was worth locking up at $3.36 million per season. Dach has substantial potential as the third overall pick in the 2019 NHL draft, but in his three seasons in Chicago he didn't live up to it, posting just 59 points in 152 games. He will likely start as Montreal's third-line center, meaning his value will be limited. If he plays well, he should see a significant role increase on a mediocre Canadiens team, so he is someone to keep an eye on.
