Jets Agree To Terms With Maxwell

News: The Jets have agreed to terms with Maxwell on a one-year, two-way contract, the Toronto Sun reports, adding that he will make $715,000 in the NHL and $62,500 in the AHL.
Analysis: Drafted by the Canadiens in the second round (No. 49 overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Maxwell generated 40 points (11 G, 29 A) in 47 games with the AHL Hamilton, a minor league affiliate of the Canadiens, last season. Upon being traded to the Thrashers this past February, Maxwell appeared in 12 games at the NHL level and recorded two points and a minus-7 rating. The 23-year-old is a mere depth option for the Jets this early in his career.

Analysis: Maxwell, who hadn't recorded a point in 20 NHL games with Montreal over the past two seasons, had racked up 11 goals and 29 assists in 47 games for AHL Hamilton thus far. He'll give the Thrashers' organization some added depth up front.

Maxwell Dropped to AHL by Montreal

D'Agostini down, Maxwell up for Habs

News: The Canadiens have sent RW Matt D'Agostini down to the AHL and called up C Ben Maxwell.
Analysis: D'Agostini doesn't have a point since Dec. 10, and it was only a matter of time before he was demoted. Maxwell, a second-round pick from 2006, has zero points in seven career NHL games, but is a solid prospect. Until he gets a full-time job in Montreal, his value remains limited to deeper keeper leagues. Continue to ignore both these guys in seasonal play.

Maxwell makes NHL debut

News: Canadiens C Ben Maxwell made his NHL debut in a loss to the Capitals on Saturday. Maxwell, who was called up along with G Marc Denis from Hamilton of the AHL on Friday, moved into Koivu's spot on a line with RW Matt D'Agostini and LW Andrei Kostitsyn.
Analysis: Maxwell, a second-round pick from 2006, has 20 points (eight goals) in 26 AHL games this season. The fact he is going to get top-six time is interesting, so keep an eye on his stats over the next couple of weeks.

Habs need to call on Maxwell

News: The Canadiens recalled center Ben Maxwell from Hamilton of the AHL Friday as first-line center Saku Koivu is expected to miss the game with a lower-body injury. "Ben was our best option since Kyle Chipchura is injured right now,"coach Guy Carbonneau told NHL.com. "He did some good things during training camp and he will be playing with Andrei Kostitsyn and Matt D'Agostini. He's an offensive player and we want to see what he can do."
Analysis: Maxwell, a second-round pick from 2006, has 20 points (eight goals) in 26 games with the Bulldogs. The fact he is going to get top-line time Saturday is always a nice surprise for a hockey player, but Maxwell is just up with the team until Koivu is healthy. He is best used in long-term keeper leagues.

Canadiens cut three forwards

News: The Montreal Canadiens send forwards Ben Maxwell, Gregory Stewart and Matt D'Agostini to the AHL on Wednesday.

Habs trim roster significantly

News: The Montreal Canadiens announced they were sending Andrew Archer, Mathieu Aubin, Ajay Baines, Thomas Beauregard, Mathieu Biron, Jimmy Bonneau, Mathieu Carle, Jean-Philippe Cote, Yann Danis, Jonathan Ferland, Jon Gleed, Marvin Degon, Loic Lacasse, Janne Lahti, Francis Lemieux, Corey Locke, Eric Manlow, Duncan Milroy, Jamie Rivers, Ryan Russell, Gregory Stewart, Cory Urquhart and Pavel Valentenko to Hamilton of the AHL on Monday.
Analysis: Well, it looks like the Bulldogs roster is mostly set. Danis loses out to Jaroslav Halak and Cristobal Huet for one of the two goaltender spots for the Habs. Ben Maxwell and Ryan White were also assigned to Kootenay and Calgary of the junior ranks. Only Carle has any long-term keeper Fantasy value, but he is battling back from injury right now.
