Hughes therefore took charge on January 18, 2022 and will be chatting to reporters after practice with the team having some good times these days.

The Habs earned a 4-1 win on Tuesday at the expense of the Winnipeg Jets, leaders of the Central Division.

The Montreal team won a second straight matchup, which they haven’t been able to match since November 23rd and 25th.

However, the GM should be consulted on his intentions before the National Hockey League’s trade deadline; this is set for March 3rd and the Bleu Blanc Rouge is likely to play the role of seller.

The club is 15th in the Eastern Conference and the chances of qualifying for the playoffs are slim. The many injuries among the workforce – Jake Evans, Juraj Slafkovsky, Jake Allen, Joel Armia and Brendan Gallagher among the hockey players on the sidelines – will also be a topic in the media.

As for the players, they play the Florida Panthers on Thursday, the second in a series of home games.
