  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Pelted with pucks in shootout loss

    Primeau made 40 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss to Ottawa on Saturday.

    Primeau stopped a load of rubber but was hard on himself in the postgame media scrum. "They got all four [with us] a man down," Primeau said. "Your goalie's got to be your best penalty-killer, so I don't feel good." He hasn't won in April (0-2-1 in three starts) while allowing 14 goals in those three games, but Primeau has a .910 save percentage in 20 starts this season despite an 8-9-3 record. We expect him to be in the league full-time next season, and the 24-year-old goalie may deliver spot start value, or even more if the Canadiens ice a more competitive group of skaters in front of him.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Slated starter for Saturday

    Primeau is expected to start on the road against Ottawa on Saturday.

    Primeau stopped 41 of 45 shots en route to a 5-2 loss to the Rangers on Sunday. He's 8-9-2 with a 2.91 GAA and a .910 save percentage across 21 contests this season. The Senators, who have scored just 1.88 goals per game over their past eight outings, figure to be a favorable matchup for Primeau.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Struggles again Sunday

    Primeau allowed four goals on 45 shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Primeau was perfect with 18 saves in a relief appearance versus the Maple Leafs on Saturday, but his luck didn't carry over to Sunday's contest. The 24-year-old kept the Rangers off the board for over half the game, but they broke through with a pair of power-play goals and took over in the third period. Primeau is down to 8-9-2 with a 2.91 GAA and a .910 save percentage through 21 appearances. The Canadiens' next game is at home Tuesday versus the struggling Flyers.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: In net vs. Rangers

    Primeau will guard the road crease Sunday against the Rangers.

    Primeau struggled in his last start, allowing six goals in a loss to the Lightning, though he was solid in relief Saturday against Toronto, turning aside all 18 shots faced. Overall, Primeau is 8-8-2 with a .910 save percentage and 2.85 GAA this season. He'll have a tough task against a Rangers team that's averaging 3.43 goals per game.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Struck by Lightning six times

    Primeau made 29 saves in a 7-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday. He allowed six goals.

    It was a game of men versus boys, and Primeau didn't really stand a chance against Tampa's top players. His last five games have been a tale of two netminders. He's 3-2-0 over that stretch, and in the three wins, Primeau has surrendered just two goals. In the two losses? Eleven goals against. Primeau is a tough fantasy activation in any matchup right now. The jury remains out on his future.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Slated starter for Thursday

    Primeau is expected to start at home against Tampa Bay on Thursday, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Primeau has an 8-7-2 record, 2.75 GAA and .913 save percentage in 18 appearances in 2023-24. He's won his last two starts while saving 65 of 67 shots (.970 save percentage). Although Primeau has been effective recently, the Lightning, who rank fifth offensively with 3.46 goals per game, figure to be a difficult opponent.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Nearly notches shutout Thursday

    Primeau made 29 saves in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    The 24-year-old netminder nearly recorded his third shutout of the season, but Owen Tippett snuck a puck past Primeau through traffic with 1:01 left on the clock in the third period. He's emerged as a reliable backup to Sam Montembeault since Jake Allen got traded. Over five starts in March, Primeau has gone 3-1-1 with a 1.97 GAA and .939 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Tending twine Thursday

    Primeau will guard the home cage versus the Flyers on Thursday.

    Primeau has made just 17 appearances this season, in part due to the club's decision to carry three netminders for most of the year. With Jake Allen now in New Jersey, the 24-year-old Primeau has seen an increase in starts, though he remains the No. 2 option behind Sam Montembeault.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Stands tall against onslaught

    Primeau stopped 36 of 37 Seattle shots en route to a 5-1 win Sunday.

    Primeau has had peaks and valleys lately. In his last game, he allowed five goals on 28 shots. Before that, he posted a 41-save shutout. Montreal is allowing a lot of shots, and it's hard to predict if Primeau will save the day. In 16 starts this season, he's allowed four or more goals six times.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Tending twine Sunday

    Primeau will guard the road goal Sunday versus Seattle.

    Primeau is coming off a 23-save effort in a 5-2 loss to Calgary on March 16. He has posted a 6-7-2 record this season with a 2.97 GAA and a .905 save percentage over 16 appearances. The Kraken sit 29th in the league with 2.62 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Gives up five goals

    Primeau stopped 23 of 28 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

    It was a tough hole for the Canadiens to climb out of as Primeau allowed three consecutive goals to the Flames before the halfway mark. Montreal tried to make a game out of it but the two early Calgary goals in the third ended up being a backbreaker. This was Primeau's third start since Jake Allen was traded to the Devils and he has produced only one win over that span. While Primeau's recent shutout is encouraging, Montreal's struggles make him a risky option for fantasy managers seeking a reliable starting goaltender.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Starting in Calgary

    Primeau will guard the road net Saturday against the Flames.

    Primeau was spectacular in his last start, stopping 41 shots in a shutout win over Columbus on Tuesday. The 24-year-old netminder is 6-6-2 with a .910 save percentage and 2.83 GAA this season. He'll face a Calgary team that's lost three of four contests going into Saturday's matchup.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Delivers second career shutout

    Primeau turned aside all 41 shots he faced in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    The Canadiens did all their scoring in the first six minutes of the game, and Primeau took care of the rest. The 24-year-old netminder kicked out 22 shots in the first period alone en route to his second shutout of his career, both of which have come in his last four starts. He remains firmly behind Sam Montembeault on the depth chart, but Primeau's making a case for more playing time by posting a .945 save percentage since the All-Star break.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Guarding cage Tuesday

    Primeau will be in goal at home versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

    Primeau has earned just one win in his last seven appearances while registering a 1-3-2 record, a 2.85 GAA and an .899 save percentage in that span. With the trade of Jake Allen to New Jersey, Primeau should see a little more action down the stretch, though he remains the secondary choice in net behind Sam Montembeault.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Solid, but can't hold lead

    Primeau made 27 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday.

    The Habs were up a couple of goals, but Primeau and his teammates couldn't hold the lead. The young netminder was also strong in the shootout, forcing it to six rounds before ultimately getting the loss. Primeau has been part of a three-headed goalie monster for a long time this season, but that could change by Friday's trade deadline. Jake Allen could be on the move, which would open the door for Primeau to receive an increased role. Unfortunately, his 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage make him a difficult player to trust for fantasy managers.

  • Canadiens' Cayden Primeau: Facing Lightning

    Primeau will patrol the road crease in Tampa Bay on Saturday.

    Primeau starts approximately once every four games as he is sharing the net with Sam Montembeault and Jake Allen. Primeau is 5-6-1 with a 3.06 GAA and a .901 save percentage this season. He will face the Lightning, who are currently holding down the second and final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

    Primeau allowed three goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

Primeau falls to 5-6-1 with a .901 save percentage and 3.06 GAA while splitting work with Jake Allen and Sam Montembeault this season. Montreal will look to get back in the win column Saturday on the road against New Jersey.

    Primeau picked up his first career shutout in his last game, stopping 13 shots in a 5-0 win over Anaheim on Feb. 14. The netminder is currently sharing the net with Sam Montembeault and Jake Allen and is not seeing a lot of action as a result. Primeau is 5-5-1 with a 3.07 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 2023-24. The Penguins are averaging only 2.89 goals, 24th in the league.
