Top Christian Dvorak News

  • Canadiens' Christian Dvorak: Moved to IR

    Dvorak (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly.

    Dvorak was already ruled out for the season so this is simply a procedural move. He ended the 2023-24 campaign with seven points in 25 games. His status for training camp should become clearer over the summer.

  • Canadiens' Christian Dvorak: Ruled out for season

    Dvorak will miss the remainder of the 2023-24 campaign due to a torn pectoral injury. He will undergo surgery Friday.

    Dvorak's year never really got underway after he missed the first 10 games of the campaign due to a knee injury that cost him the end of the 2022-23 season as well. In his 25 appearances this campaign, the 27-year-old winger managed three goals and four assists, including one power-play point while averaging 15:56 of ice time. Without Dvorak on the squad, Sean Monahan will likely move into a second-line center role. While not official yet, Dvorak probably will be designated for long-term injured reserve in the coming days in order to free up extra cap space for the Canadiens.
