Habs News, JJ Daigneault, Draft Rumors and More

Au tour de Daigneault de se joindre au Canadien?
Good morning Hab fans!

Yesterday, I posted a quick roundup of the Montreal Canadiens' various moves of late. After all, with so many hires of late, I felt a little summary would not hurt.

After that was posted, a couple of individuals on Twitter posed one very interesting question: will there be a third assistant coach?

The question was a good one. However, I did not have an answer at the time.

Then, @realpuckpandits provided a tip. According to Dany Dubé and Brian Wilde — also via Twitter — it seems that JJ Daigneault of on the verge of obtaining that third assistant spot. 

Daigneault served as an assistant at the AHL level with the Connecticut Whale this past season. He also has 899 games of NHL experience, including parts of seven season with the Canadiens.

What I find odd about this Daigneault thing is that there is one group saying Daigneault has been hired and then there is another group saying he hasn't even been contact.

Then there were the reports that Robinson has been guaranteed to interview for the spot
