The Canadiens recalled forward Charles Hudon from the St. John’s IceCaps on Tuesday afternoon. He will join the team for practice on Wednesday morning.
The 21-year-old center has 10 goals and 20 points in 24 AHL games this season, good for second on the IceCaps in points so far in 2015-16. The Canadiens’ fifth-round pick from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft is in his second professional season, having finished second on the Hamilton Bulldogs’ scoring leaderboard in his rookie campaign last year with 19 goals and 57 points.
This is Hudon’s first NHL call up.
