The Canadiens have recalled Michael McCarron from Laval (AHL).
McCarron, 22, was a first round pick (No.25 overall) in 2013 and has appeared in 51 career NHL games, recording just seven points (2G / 5A). The 6-foot-6, 230 lbs. forward has registered two goals and two assists in six games with the Laval Rocket so far this year. He comes up because Ales Hemsky is dealing with an upper-body injury.
McCarron will be in the Canadiens' lineup on Tuesday.
McCarron served as a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will replace David Desharnais in the lineup tonight. Desharnais is a potential trade piece for the Canadiens, so they will scratch him as asset protection before the trade deadline. McCarron has one goal and four assists (five points) in 21 games this season.
