Gorges Traded To Sabres

News: The Canadiens have traded Josh Gorges to the Sabres for a 2016 second-round pick, CBC.ca reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges refused a trade to Toronto and expanded his trade list to 15 teams before joining the Sabres. Although Gorges isn't much of a fantasy factor -- he totaled just 14 points in 66 games for Montreal last season -- his leadership and defensive prowess will be invaluable in Buffalo. By acquiring Gorges, the Sabres have reached the cap floor of $51 million and added two of the Canadiens' captains.

Gorges "In Shock" The Habs Are Shopping Him

News: Josh Gorges is "in shock" that the Canadiens are trying to trade him, reports TSN.ca. "I want people to know that I never wanted to leave Montreal. I have never asked for a trade - this is (general manager) Marc Bergevin's call. I am in shock."
Analysis: Josh Gorges, who went to Montreal from San Jose in a 2007 deal, has four years remaining on a six-year deal worth $3.9 million per season. "This is really hard to accept," continued Gorges, who has worn the A for the Habs. "I have always given my heart to this team." He did confirm that he has expanded his list of possible trade destinations to include a couple of Canadian teams. The Leafs have expressed interest, but it's not known if Toronto is on this list.

Habs Looking To Move Gorges?

News: The Canadiens are looking to trade Josh Gorges, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. He has provided the team with a list of 15 cities he's willing to be dealt.
Analysis: Interestingly, none of the Canadian teams are on that list. He has a cap hit of $3.9 million through 2017-18 and is a shot-blocking machine. He could help a lot of teams, but is unlikely to improve his fantasy value in other cities.

Canadiens' Gorges Collects Assist In Return

News: Josh Gorges (hand) registered an assist and a minus-1 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Most importantly, the veteran defenseman registered nearly 22 minutes of ice time in his first game in over a month. While Josh Gorges isn't exactly winning any leagues for fantasy owners or setting any new career-highs, he will certainly be an important part of Montreal's playoff run.

News: Josh Gorges is targeting a return from his hand injury April 9, when the Canadiens play the Blackhawks in Chicago, Hockey Inside Out reports. He has missed nearly a month because of a broken hand.

Habs' Gorges Expected To Miss Four Weeks

News: Josh Gorges underwent surgery on his fractured left hand Monday and is expected to miss four weeks.
Analysis: Josh Gorges' projected timetable would seem to run up with the end of the regular season, effectively making him an afterthought in any annual fantasy league. The Canadiens should have their most proficient shot blocker close to full health by the time the playoffs commence.

Canadiens' Gorges Has Broken Hand

News: Josh Gorges has a broken bone in his right hand, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges suffered the injury last Saturday and played through it the last two games, but couldn't go on any longer. He may be shut down for a bit, but the Canadiens have not offered an estimated downtime. Mike Weaver filled in for him in Thursday's loss to the Coyotes.

Habs' Gorges Hurts Hand

News: Josh Gorges is slated to be evaluated for a hand injury.
Analysis: The report adds that Josh Gorges -- who saw 21:28 worth of ice time Wednesday against the Ducks -- is returning to Montreal on Thursday to get his injury checked out, so he'll miss at least one game, with the Habs playing the Coyotes on the road Thursday evening.

Habs' Gorges Not Having Much Fantasy Impact

News: Josh Gorges has one goal and 10 assists in 58 games so far this season.
Analysis: Josh Gorges was scoreless in the six games leading into the Olympic break, and hasn't added much offensively all season. He's much more valuable to the Canadiens at this point than he is in most fantasy leagues.

Rare Multi-Point Night For Habs' Gorges

News: Josh Gorges picked up two assists -- one of them shorthanded -- in Thursday's overtime win in Ottawa.
Analysis: He had secondary helpers on Tomas Plekanec's early shortie as well as Plekanec's late game-tying goal. That's three points in the last two games for Josh Gorges, who isn't much known for his offense -- he previously hadn't recorded a point since Dec. 5.

Montreal's Gorges Returns

News: Josh Gorges returned to the lineup Saturday night after missing one game because of a lower-body injury. He skated 28 shifts for 19:18 of time on ice in a 2-1 shootout victory over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Josh Gorges had three hits and three blocked shots in the win.

Montreal's Gorges To Play Saturday

News: Josh Gorges (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday after missing one game, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Habs' Gorges Out With Lower-Body Injury

News: Josh Gorges will miss Saturday's game against the Predators with a lower-body injury, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: With just seven points in 37 games this season, Josh Gorges' absence probably won't go noticed in most leagues outside of those that reward hits and blocks. After Saturday's game, the Canadiens won't play again until exactly a week later, giving Gorges a decent amount of time to recover from the injury.

Habs' Gorges Has Two Assists

News: Josh Gorges has two assists in Friday night's win over Washington. The points were his first in 13 games.
Analysis: We don't employ Josh Gorges on our fantasy teams for points; he's a top-tier shot blocker. He blocked two more Friday night and leads Montreal with 59 for the season. That's good for fourth in the NHL.

Montreal's Gorges Scores Rare Goal

News: Josh Gorges scored a goal and blocked six shots in 22:28 of ice time Saturday night in Montreal's win over Vancouver. It was just Gorges' 14th goal in 499 NHL games, so we know by now not to expect much offense from him.
Analysis: Since missing most of the third period against Calgary because of a lower-body injury, Josh Gorges has played over 22 minutes in each of the last two games. If your league rewards blocked shots, you want Gorges on the ice for as much time as possible. He has 15 blocked shots this season, tied for fourth in the NHL.

Analysis: Josh Gorges was limited to one shift in the third period of Wednesday night's loss to Calgary and had appeared headed for a night off Thursday. He tested out the injury during the pre-game warm-up and declared himself ready to go.

Canadiens' Gorges Not 100 Percent

News: Josh Gorges was not playing at 100 percent in Wednesday night's loss to Calgary, according to Montreal head coach Michel Therrien, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Josh Gorges played just 20 seconds in the third period and should be considered day-to-day entering Thursday's game in Edmonton. If he's not activated Thursday, Nathan Beaulieu will start in Gorges' place.

Analysis: That's a man's night from Josh Gorges, who earlier this week recorded his league-leading 200th block of the season. For his career, Gorges averages just under two blocks per game.

Montreal Pays Gorges, Who Pays Back

News: Josh Gorges scored a goal in Montreal's win over Winnipeg on Wednesday.
