News: Michael Blunden was sent down to AHL Hamilton on Sunday, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden has failed to record a point through six games this season. He also finished at minu-3 for Friday's game, leaving him at minus-2 for the season. He could be back up at some point during the season provided he starts putting the puck in the net for the Bulldogs.

Canadiens' Blunden Makes Season Debut

News: Michael Blunden had 6:35 of ice time with one shot on net, one blocked shot, two hits and finished at plus-1 in Tuesday night's loss to the Oilers. He was called up from AHL Hamilton on Monday after Montreal suffered a rash of injuries at the forward position.
Analysis: Michael Blunden has been around this block before, filling in at the NHL level until the injured forwards heal up. He'll skate on the fourth line and get minimal ice time.

10/21/2013

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Habs Recall Blunden From AHL

News: Michael Blunden was recalled from AHL Hamilton on Monday, the Montreal Gazette's Dave Stubbs reports.

Canadiens' Blunden Activated Saturday

News: Michael Blunden, who was called up from AHL Hamilton on Friday, was in the Montreal lineup Saturday night. He skated 10 shifts for 5:57 of ice time in a loss to Buffalo.
Analysis: Michael Blunden's most significant contribution to the game was picking up an interference penalty, which led to Buffalo's first goal. With the news that Rene Bourque (concussion) had a setback, Blunden may stick around for a bit longer, but he's locked into fourth-line duty.

3/22/2013

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Canadiens Recall Blunden

News: Michael Blunden was recalled from AHL Hamilton on Friday, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: The Habs were in need of some extra help on the wing with Ryan White set to miss Saturday's game with a lower body injury. White isn't expected to miss a ton of time, so Michael Blunden stay in Montreal should be short-lived.

3/16/2013

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Canadiens' Blunden Debuts

News: Michael Blunden made his season debut Saturday night in Montreal's win over New Jersey.
Analysis: He saw strictly fourth-line duty, skating 7:49 in with one blocked shot and plus-1.

Habs' Blunden Recalled From AHL

News: Michael Blunden was recalled from AHL Hamilton on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of RDS.ca reports.
Analysis: Michael Ryder (lower body) did not make the trip to New Jersey for Saturday's game against the Devils, so the Habs gave Michael Blunden the call. The 26-year-old Blunden has put up 22 points (10G, 12A) in 54 AHL games this season, and he'll probably head back down once Ryder is healthy.

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Habs Assign Blunden To Minors

News: Michael Blunden was assigned to AHL Hamilton on Wednesday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden was able to earn a roster spot out of training camp, but was a healthy scratch for the first two games, making him relatively expendable. He previously played with Hamilton prior to the NHL lockout, accumulating seven goals and seven assists over 36 games.

1/19/2013

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Habs' Blunden A Scratch Saturday

News: Michael Blunden will not play in Saturday's season opener against the Maple Leafs, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden looks to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game. He's known as a defensive forward and only has eight points in 90 career games.

1/18/2013

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Blunden Makes Habs' Roster

News: Michael Blunden, who was waived Thursday, has made the Canadiens' opening-night roster, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: The move completes a busy week for Michael Blunden, who is a big body with 90 games of NHL experience. He wasn't invited to camp, but was called up for Thursday night's scrimmage and scored a couple of goals. Despite the offensive output Thursday, Blunden is viewed primarily as a defensive forward.

Michael Blunden

News: Michael Blunden was waived by the Canadiens, the Montreal Gazette reports. He had been called up from AHL Hamilton to participate in Thursday night's training-camp scrimmage.
Analysis: If no team claims him by Friday, Michael Blunden will return to AHL Hamilton.

Canadiens Waive Blunden

News: Michael Blunden was waived by the Canadiens on Friday, according to Renaud Lavoie of RDS.ca.
Analysis: Michael Blunden could end up being sent to the minors. This move was made in anticipation of an NHL lockout. Blunden totaled two goals and two assists in 39 games with the Canadiens last season.

Blunden Back In Montreal

News: Michael Blunden re-signed with Montreal on Sunday, according to Montreal's Official Website.

Montreal's Blunden Returns

News: Michael Blunden, who was on injured reserve because of a knee injury, has returned to the Canadiens' lineup.
Analysis: Michael Blunden's impact on a game comes from throwing his 6-4 frame around. He was credited with three hits and was plus-1 in 10:46 in Saturday's shootout loss to the Islanders.

Michael Blunden

Habs' Blunden Skates Thursday

News: Blunded (knee) skated for 10 minutes Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last month and Thursday's presence on the ice certainly represents a positive step toward his return to game action.

2/9/2012

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Habs' Blunden Out 4-to-6 Weeks

News: Michael Blunden underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday and will miss four-to-six weeks, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden was injured last week when he was driven hard into the boards by New Jersey's Patrik Elias. He was not a big part of the Canadiens rotation, but certainly could have seen increased playing time if the Canadiens' objective shifted from making the playoffs in 2011-12 to develop its youth.

Habs' Blunden Gets Knee Scoped

News: Michael Blunden is slated to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden is expected to miss 4-6 weeks as a result, but with just three points in 28 games this season, his absence will be felt more by the Habs (in terms of forward depth) than by fantasy owners.

2/6/2012

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Canadiens Place Blunden On Injured Reserve

News: The Canadiens placed Michael Blunden (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday, Renaud Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden's absence will hurt the Canadiens' depth, but with just three points in 28 games this season, the winger's absence probably won't impact many fantasy owners.

2/3/2012

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Blunden To Miss At Least One For Montreal

News: Michael Blunden (lower body) will miss at least Saturday's game against Washington, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
Analysis: Considering Montreal plays Sunday against Winnipeg as well, it seems like a two-game absence for Michael Blunden is far from unlikely.

2/2/2012

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Habs' Blunden Exits Early

News: Michael Blunden left Thursday's loss to New Jersey with an undisclosed injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden played just 4:57 in the game before exiting and has not produced much this season, with three points through 28 games.

Blunden Scores In Montreal Win

News: Michael Blunden skated eight shifts for 4:22 on Saturday, but made the most of it with a second-period goal in Montreal's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Michael Blunden has been getting regular fourth-line duty for Montreal since being recalled in mid-December, but typically doesn't get enough ice time to be of use. His goal Saturday was his second point in 19 games with the Canadiens this season.

12/14/2011

Michael Blunden, RW, MON

Michael Blunden

Canadiens Recall Blunden

News: The Canadiens recalled Michael Blunden from AHL Hamilton on Friday, CJAD-AM Radio reports.
Analysis: Michael Blunden will return to the Canadiens with Travis Moen out of action due to a lower body injury suffered in Tuesday's game. Blunden has just four points in 59 career NHL games, so don't expect him to help your fantasy team much.
