2018-10-07 analysis Byron was a huge reason the Canadiens were able to pull off a surprising blowout win in Pittsburgh, notching two goals on three shots and assisting Joel Armia on a shorthanded goal. Despite only playing 14:54, Byron was able to lead the team in points, goals, and plus-minus (plus-3), as well as tie for the lead with three blocked shots
2018-10-07 update Byron scored two goals and added an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over Pittsburgh.
2018-10-03 Weight 162 lb 163 lb
2018-09-23 analysis The contract will take him through the 2022-23 season, and it's well-deserved stability for Byron, who has scored at least 20 goals in each of the last two seasons. The 29-year-old could see another uptick in scoring this season if the Canadiens consistently utilize him on power play in lieu of Max Pacioretty, who was traded to Vegas earlier in September.
2018-09-23 update Byron signed a four-year, $13.6 million contract extension with the Canadiens on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
2018-09-20 analysis It was surprising on a couple of levels to see Byron throwing down with the Panthers' Jonathan Huberdeau. Prior to dropping the gloves Wednesday, Byron had just four fights during his NHL career, and he underwent offseason shoulder surgery. To see him trade punches was a sign that he's confident in the shoulder and will be ready to go when the season drops Oct. 3 in Toronto.
2018-09-20 update Byron had three shots on net, two hits and seven penalty minutes in Wednesday's preseason game against Florida.
2018-09-14 analysis Byron was originally expected to be sidelined for six months after undergoing shoulder surgery in April, but the speedy winger has defied the odds, returning to practice just five months after his operation. All signs point to Byron, who notched 20 goals and 35 points in 82 games last campaign, being 100 percent for the season opener.
2018-09-14 update Head coach Claude Julien expects Byron (shoulder) to be ready for Montreal's Oct. 3 season opener against Toronto, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.
2018-09-10 analysis Byron -- who underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason -- was expected to be sidelined for six months, which wouldn't have him available for any of training camp. It's possible the club opts to simply hold him out of preseason games if there are concerns regarding his shoulder.
2018-09-10 update Byron (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.
