Joel Hanley recalled

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

On Sunday afternoon the Canadiens announced that defenseman Joel Hanley has been called up from the St. John’s IceCaps as part of an emergency recall for Sunday night’s contest against the Calgary Flames. The move comes on the heels of the news that blue-liner Victor Bartley will be out day-to-day after suffering a lower-body injury.

In 61 games with the IceCaps this season, the Keswick, Ontario native has registered five goals and added eight assists. The former UMass-Amherst University (Hockey East) product - who is expected to make his NHL debut on Sunday night at the Bell Centre - signed a one-year, two way contract with the Canadiens back in January 2015.
