Phillip Danault missed Thursday's morning skate due to an illness.

It's not yet known if Danault will also miss Thursday's contest, but we imagine he's at least doubtful. He has five goals and nine points in 26 games this season.
Dec 8 - 11:29 AM

Phillip Danault scored the first goal of Saturday’s night 5-0 victory of the Montreal Canadiens over the Detroit Red Wings and that turned out to be the game winner.

The game winner came at the 4:17 minute mark of the first with an assist from Andrew Shaw and Max Pacioretty. Danault also provided an assist on Pacioretty’s fifth goal of the night at the 16:49 minute mark of the second period. Danault now has nine points on the strength of six goals and three assists.

Phillip Danault scored in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Danault opened the season as a winger on the fourth line, but he was promoted to third line center tonight. He skated with Andrew Shaw and Max Pacioretty against the Kings. Danault's goal at the 9:37 mark of the second period extended Montreal's lead to 3-0. He has four goals and three assists in 14 games. The Habs are now 9-0-0 at home this season.
Nov 10 - 11:02 PM

Phillip Danault scored his second goal in three games Wednesday night in a 3-2 win over the Islanders.

Danault gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead at the 11:21 mark of the third period. He has contributed four points in seven matches this season.
Oct 27 - 8:10 AM

Phillip Danault has inked a two-year, $1,824,000 contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Danault had four goals and 10 points in 51 games between Chicago and Montreal last season. The 23-year-old has secured a one-way deal, so he'll make the same amount even if he gets sent to the minors.
Jul 6 - 6:01 PM

Phillip Danault and Daniel Carr got qualifying offers from Montreal on Monday.

It's believed that the play of Danault made Lars Eller expendable, so the latter was traded to Washington at the NHL Draft. Danault had three goals and five points in 21 games with the Canadiens after he was acquired from Chicago. Carr produced six goals and nine points in 23 NHL matches last year.

Phillip Danault scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers Saturday night.

Lars Eller also found the back of the net for the Canadiens. Sven Andrighetto, David Desharnais, Nathan Beaulieu, and Greg Pateryn each registered an assist.
Mar 26 - 9:58 PM

Phillip Danault played 14:17 in his debut for the Montreal Canadiens.

Danault was acquired from the Blackhawks on Friday night. He finished the game with a minus-1 rating, one shot on goal and one hit. "Really responsible on the ice," coach Michel Therrien said about Danault prior to the game against Toronto. "He’s a young player who is making his debut in the NHL this year. And I know in Chicago they really like him, they really like the way that he was responsible on the ice and he’s a good kid and he’s got a bright future and we’re going to work with him."

The Canadiens are very high on newly acquired Phillip Danault.

He was not able to join the Habs for their morning skate on Saturday but should arrive for the game at 7:00 pm ET against Toronto. Danault is a restricted free agent as of July 1st, but the Canadiens are almost certain to re-sign him as the team sees him as part of their core going forward. We believe he will be a solid third-liner for the Habs which makes his fantasy value questionable. It remains to be seen if Montreal coach Michel Therrien sees Danault's role differently.
Feb 27 - 10:51 AM

Phillip Danault will start up in Montreal.

Sometimes when young players are acquired they're sent down to the AHL for seasoning, but clearly Montreal wants to get a head start on figuring out where Danault fits in their system. Which is great news for him because they could use his talents.
Feb 26 - 10:17 PM

The Montreal Canadiens acquired Phillip Danault and a second-round pick in 2018 from the Chicago Blackhawks for Tomas Fleischmann and Dale Weise.

Hawks General Manager Stan Bowman was seen scouting in Montreal earlier this week and now we know why. Chicago adds two more veteran forwards that should fit perfectly into their bottom-six. The Canadiens get a local player who will also play in their bottom-two lines. Acquiring a second-round pick is always nice, but the 2018 draft is still over two years away.
Feb 26 - 10:05 PM

Phillip Danault scored his first career NHL goal during Friday's 3-1 win over Buffalo, and it was a ripper.

After taking the Duncan Keith lead-pass through the neutral zone, Danault faked a cut to the inside as he entered the offensive zone. Having sufficiently spaced himself away from Sabres defender Zach Bogosian, Danault ripped a laser bar-down short-side with the flick of his wrists. Go find a highlight, he had a proper celebration to boot as his tally proved to be the game-winner as well.
Jan 8 - 11:33 PM

Phillip Danault has picked up an assist in each of his last three games.

"He's done a real good job of adapting quickly," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He definitely brings energy, and he's got some purpose to his game and some responsibility in an interesting role for him. But I still think there's some offense to his game — he likes to think of scoring, or making players and sustaining pucks. He's been good in the puck areas, so I've been very happy with his start." Danault has been centering the third line between Andrew Desjardins and Teuvo Teravainen.
Jan 5 - 10:36 AM

Expect Phillip Danault to stay with the Blackhawks indefinitely as he has done a very good impersonation of the injured Marcus Kruger.

Danault has been an excellent replacement for Kruger, who will be lost for the rest of the regular season with a wrist injury. That said, it is only a fourth-line role which makes him virtually worthless from a fantasy perspective.
