Ex-Canadien Bouillon Joins Swiss Club

News: Francis Bouillon signed with Ambri-Piotta-NLA of Switzerland on Wednesday, TSN reports.
Analysis: The soon-to-be-39-year-old Francis Bouillon figures to end his playing career in Europe after the Canadiens released him from his training camp tryout in October. Bouillon tallied two goals and six points over 52 games with the Habs last season.

Habs Release Bouillon

News: The Canadiens released Francis Bouillon on Monday.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner has never been much of an offensive threat, and after tallying just two goals and four assists in 52 games last season, it appears his NHL career may be over.

Canadiens' Bouillon Could Stick With Canadiens

News: Francis Bouillon, who has been skating with the Canadiens during preseason, is competing for the final spot on defense with rookie Jarred Tinordi, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: After the Canadiens sent Greg Pateryn down to Hamilton of the American Hockey League, it only leaves Francis Bouillon and Tinordi on the major league roster. Tinordi has had a rough camp, turning pucks over and taking stupid penalties. It might be best for him to take regular turns in the AHL while Bouillon becomes the seventh defenseman.

Free Agent Bouillon Skating With Montreal

News: Francis Bouillon will skate with the Canadiens during training camp, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon, who was with the Canadiens in 2013-14, was not signed in the offseason. If he makes the opening-night roster, it would be mean something has gone wrong with the development of younger defensemen like Nathan Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi or Greg Pateryn.

Habs' Bouillon Scores OT Winner

News: Francis Bouillon scored the game-winning goal in overtime in a 5-4 win over the Senators. The goal was Bouillon's first of the season and finished off a furious comeback that saw Montreal scored three times in the final four minutes of regulation.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon, who recently returned to the active lineup because of Josh Gorges' hand injury, typically does not provide much fantasy value.

Habs' Bouillon To Play Wednesday

News: Francis Bouillon will be in the starting lineup Wednesday night against the Bruins, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon is re-entering the active roster after the Canadiens learned they'll be without Josh Gorges (broken hand) for at least a month.

Habs' Bouillon Struggling To Find Ice Time

News: Francis Bouillon has appeared in only eight games since the New Year.
Analysis: His appearance in the Habs' final game before the break last Saturday marked his first contest since Jan. 22, a span of two weeks without any ice time. At age 38, Francis Bouillon is on the downside of his career and probably won't settle into a regular role for the Canadiens barring an injury to another defenseman.

Habs' Bouillon To Be Active Saturday

News: Francis Bouillon will be on the active roster for Saturday night's game in Nashville, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon, who played a couple of seasons with the Predators, has appeared in only four of the last 16 games. He's likely to replace Douglas Murray.

Canadiens' Bouillon Playing Big Minutes

News: Francis Bouillon had 21:22 of ice time Saturday night in a loss to the Sharks. The 38-year-old rear guard began the season averaging a bit more than 16 minutes per game, but that has increased to 18:18 over the past five.
Analysis: With just two points in 11 games, it doesn't matter how much time on ice Francis Bouillon is getting. He doesn't offer much to fantasy owners.

Bouillon Skates For Habs

News: Francis Bouillon (lower body) suited up and played 16:33 in Montreal's preseason win over New Jersey. He had an assist, blocked a shot and had two hits in the game.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon, who was sidelined late last week with the injury, skated on the third defensive pairing with Jarred Tinordi.

Montreal's Bouillon Returns

News: Francis Bouillon (lower body) returned to practice Sunday, the Hockey Inside Out blog reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon had missed some last week with the injury. He and a few other veterans that are nursing injuries are expected to see action in preseason games this week.

Habs' Bouillon Misses Practice

News: Francis Bouillon missed practice Thursday with a lower-body injury, the Montreal Gazette's Dave Stubbs reports.
Analysis: Without knowing the injury, it's tough to comment on the severity, but there have been no indications that the Habs fear this is something serious. He's day-to-day for now.

Canadiens' Bouillon Played Through Broken Finger

News: Francis Bouillon had been playing with a broken finger since April 11, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon didn't score a point since suffering the injury, although that doesn't necessarily carry any significance, given that he only recorded nine points beforehand. He should be fine for the start of the 2013-14 season.

Canadiens' Bouillon Signs One-Year Extension

News: Francis Bouillon signed a one-year, $1.5 million extension with the Canadiens, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon was playing on a one-year deal and can now become a free agent after the 2013-14 season. He is a solid defender who offers little from an offensive stand point, as evidenced by his seven points in 29 games this season. He has scored one point for every five games played over the course of his 13-year career.

Montreal's Bouillon Gets Therapy Day

News: Francis Bouillon got a therapy day and did not practice Wednesday, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Therapy days will be common during this lockout-shortened season -- especially for a 37-year-old defenseman coming off 23 minutes of ice time, including more than eight minutes on the penalty kill.

Montreal's Bouillon Second In Ice Time

News: Francis Bouillon skated 22:20 in Saturday night's loss to Toronto. Only Andrei Markov was on ice more than Bouillon, who saw action on both special teams.
Analysis: The present-and-former Canadien has a history with Montreal head coach Michel Therrien and it's obvious he'll be a big part of the team's defense -- at least until they sign P.K. Subban. The playing time is unlikely to lead to big offensive numbers, but the minutes were more than we anticipated him getting.

Bouillon Returns To Montreal

News: Francis Bouillon has signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Canadiens, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: The soon-to-be 37-year-old returns to the scene of his best seasons. He's never been an offensive-minded defender, but instead a sturdy, fireplug-like, third-pairing guy who provides more hits than anything else.

Preds Not Bringing Bouillon Back

News: It appears the Preds and Francis Bouillon are preparing to part ways, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: With Ryan Ellis poised to become a full-time player in Nashville next season, the Preds feel they need more size to go with him. "If all things are equal we'd like to get a little bit bigger on the blueline if we're going to play Ellis in a regular position there," GM David Poile said. "That's the process with not bringing [Francis Bouillon] back." Bouillon often plays much bigger than his size (5-8, 198 pounds), however he will be 37 next season and has missed much of the past two seasons with concussion issues. His point totals were 11, 10, 11 the past three seasons, so there's not much to get excited about fantasy-wise, outside of very deep formats.

Preds' Bouillon Nabs Pair Of Assists In Loss Friday

News: Francis Bouillon assisted on two goals in a 4-3 overtime loss to Phoenix on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
Analysis: The defenseman had a strong game for the Predators, finishing with a plus-2 rating, three hits, a blocked shot, and three shots on net. In six playoff games, Francis Bouillon has three assists with a plus-8 rating.

Rare Goal For Preds' Bouillon

News: Francis Bouillon scored a rare goal during Sunday's 6-1 romp over Chicago, just his second of the season.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon plays an important shutdown role on the Preds' blue line, playing mostly in even-strength and shorthanded situations. As a result, he barely cracks double digits in points every year, giving him value in the deepest fantasy leagues only.

Rare Goal For Preds' Bouillon

News: Francis Bouillon scored his first goal - his second in the past two seasons - during Monday's 5-4 shootout win against Phoenix.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon doesn't provide the Preds much by way of offensive support - he's more of a stay-at-home type who is expected to shut down other team's top lines and kill penalties. It's nice to see him get the occasional point, but don't expect much more than that for your fantasy squad.

Preds' Bouillon Seeing Less Ice Time

News: Francis Bouillon failed to hit the scoresheet Tuesday against Carolina, his eighth straight game without a point. He has just two assists in 23 games since the start of January.
Analysis: Furthermore, Francis Bouillon is being relied upon less and less these days - Tuesday he skated just 15:33, a sharp drop from the 20-plus minutes he was seeing at the start of the season. Bouillon has never been known as a big scoring threat from the blue line, something that doesn't figure to change as long as he's not playing a top-four role for the Preds. Avoid using him if you can.

Preds' Bouillon Returns From Upper Body Injury

News: Francis Bouillon made his return to the lineup Thursday against Philadelphia after missing three games with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon saw just 14:00 of ice time against the Flyers, compared to the 22-23 minutes he was seeing just prior to his injury. The fact that he skates on the team's third defensive pairing with Ryan Ellis does not make him particularly attractive from a fantasy standpoint.

Preds' Bouillon (Upper Body) Still Day-To-Day

News: Contrary to a previous report, Francis Bouillon (upper body) did not play Tuesday against Minnesota.
Analysis: Following the game, Preds coach Barry Trotz said he was hopeful Francis Bouillon would be able to play Thursday against Philadelphia.

Preds' Bouillon (Upper Body) Back Tuesday

News: Francis Bouillon (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game at Minnesota, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Francis Bouillon missed two games last week with the injury, but it appears he's good to go at this point. Start him as you normally would.
