Montreal has placed Ben Scrivens on waivers.

Scrivens will not travel with the Canadiens either, making it clear that the franchise plans to send him to the minors if he goes unclaimed. Scrivens has a 3.07 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 contests this season.

Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for Thursday's match

Mar 23 - 2:36 PM

Ben Scrivens gave up five goals on 44 shots in the Canadiens’ 5-0 loss to the Senators on Saturday night.

After winning two games in a row, Scrivens plummeted back to reality in this one. He allowed a goal in each of the first two periods, and three in the third. He’s not recommended the rest of the way; in fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Mike Condon start tomorrow, and moving forward, too. Scrivens has a 3.07 GAA and .906 SV%.

Confirming an earlier report, Ben Scrivens will start in goal Saturday against the Senators.

Ben Scrivens will be Montreal's starting goaltender on Saturday.

Scrivens is making his second straight start after posting a 41-save 3-2 victory over Buffalo on Wednesday. He's projected to be the backup on Sunday though.
Mar 18 - 12:23 PM

Montreal goalie Ben Scrivens enjoyed a first-rate game Wednesday night in the Canadiens' 3-2 overtime victory over the Sabres in Buffalo.

Scrivens turned away 41 of the 43 shots the Sabres fired at him in regulation and OT. Scrivens, who has played in only three of the Habs' past 11 games, improved his numbers in this one, reducing his goals-against average from 3.00 to 2.90 and increasing his save percentage from .902 to .908. Still, don't use Scrivens for any fantasy play this season, not even if you're desperate for one-night action. He may get more starts now but he's inconsistent, at best, and the Canadiens have not been nearly as successful this season as they should have been. They miss their superstar goalie, Carey Price, who, if you've been on Mars in 2015-16, has been out most of the season with a leg injury.
Mar 16 - 10:59 PM

Ben Scrivens will be Montreal's starter Wednesday night.

Scrivens has only participated in two of Montreal's last 10 games. He has a 3.00 GAA and .902 save percentage in 11 contests this season.
Mar 16 - 2:06 PM

Ben Scrivens stopped 30 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Dallas Stars.

Scrivens collected his first win since Feb. 9. The 29-year-old has a 4-6-0 record with a 3.00 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage. His awkward goaltending style isn't overly affective, so it's best if you stay away from him in all fantasy formats.
Mar 8 - 11:34 PM

Ben Scrivens will get the nod Tuesday against Dallas.

Scrivens has lost his last two outings and he allowed three goals against in each appearance. He has posted a 3-6-0 record this season along with a 3.01 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage.
Mar 8 - 11:20 AM

Ben Scrivens dropped a 3-2 decision to LA on Thursday night.

Scrivens turned away 28 of 31 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Kings. He's now 1-4-0 in five games with 22 goals against lifetime against his former club.
Mar 4 - 1:49 AM

Ben Scrivens will play between the pipes Thursday night.

Scrivens will be playing in his first game since Feb. 17. He has a 3.00 GAA and .901 save percentage in nine contests this season.
Mar 3 - 3:25 PM

Ben Scrivens, who replaced Mike Condon in the Montreal net after the latter allowed six goals on 27 shots against Arizona Monday, came out on the losing end of a 3-2 decision against the Avalanche in Colorado Wednesday night.

Scrivens wasn't bad, turning aside 25 of the Avs' 28 shots. But veteran Jarome Iginla beat him twice, once with the game winner with only 2:03 remaining in regulation, and the goalie's won-loss record dropped to 3-5-0. His goals-against average is an unimpressive 3.00 and his save percentage is .901. With the Habs playing this badly, don't even think about using either of their goalies in fantasy play.
Feb 17 - 11:40 PM

Ben Scrivens will get the nod for Montreal on Wednesday against Colorado.

Mike Condon was lit up for six goals on 27 shots by the Coyotes on Monday, so Scrivens will get back into the crease after he was pulled against Buffalo last Friday.
