A few hours after assigning Charles Hudon to the AHL, the Canadiens recalled forward Michael McCarron from the St. John’s IceCaps. He will join the team in Dallas.
A first-round selection of the Canadiens in 2013, McCarron has amassed 13 goals and 24 points in 28 games during the 2015-16 campaign – his first season as a pro. The 6-foot-6 centerman, who weighs in at 231 pounds, has also racked up 48 penalty minutes and a plus-1 differential.
The Michigan native also registered his second hat trick of the year in his last outing on Wednesday night against Albany.
