2018-04-17 analysis To Pacioretty's credit, he did miss 18 games due to a knee injury. However, it's tough to excuse a 30-point regression from last campaign's 67-point performance. Pacioretty also recorded a brutal minus-16 rating. The 29-year-old winger was on the trade block at the deadline, and 2018-19 is the final year in his contract, so it'll be interesting to see if the Canadiens try moving him again.

2018-04-09 analysis The report also specified that the injury that the Habs captain was dealing with was an MCL sprain. After scoring just 17 goals and 37 points in 64 games while the Canadiens finished third-to-last in the Eastern Conference, there are a lot of questions surrounding Pacioretty's future with the team.

For perspective, that's a 30-point drop compard to last season, when he only missed one game. Injuries and a dismal shooting percentage (8.0) were the main factors behind his slide, but re

That fact that the winger was able to skate Monday is a good indication he is getting healthy, but with nothing on the line in Montreal's last six games, it doesn't make sense for him to risk further injury. The attention on Pacioretty will now turn to the offseason, when owners can expect the trade rumors to begin

The 29-year-old is starting to heat up after a frustrating stretch where he went six consecutive games without getting on the scoresheet.
