Kenny Agostino recalled

Recommended Posts

As Commandant suggested in the Laval GDT, Kenny Agostino has indeed been recalled from the Rocket.  Paul Byron has been placed on IR to make room for him on the roster; Nikita Scherbak is with Laval but as he's on a conditioning stint, he's still on Montreal's active roster.

 

If Joel Armia can't go tomorrow, it looks like Agostino will make his Canadiens debut.  It won't be his NHL debut though as he's played in 22 games over parts of four seasons between Calgary, St. Louis, and Boston.

Pretty much.  We saw it in the preseason - he has some offensive skill but he's a step slow.  He reminds me a bit of Bud Holloway in that regard - a high-end AHL player but no more than a filler in the NHL.

It's weird how guys can light up the ahl, yet are only fringe players in the nhl

NHL is just faster with more skilled players.

Is bit different lining up vs a McDavid than a McCarron.

Would he be a more skilled player but with similar speed to Deslaurier? I would prefer Agostino on the 4th line with Shaw and Pecaj

 

(once Armia is back)

He is more skilled than Deslauriers and is filling in Armia's slot, even on the PP (at practice anyways).
