Charles Hudon, Greg Pateryn, and Jarred Tinordi will each be scratched Tuesday against the Sharks.

While Hudon has had a nice spree with two helpers in two games, he's not expected to provide a ton of offensive support. Pateryn meanwhile has at least provided 26 hits through just eight games, which indicates he could be a nice stop-gap if one needed to bang some bodies.

Charles Hudon will make his NHL debut in Thursday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Hudon was Montreal's fifth round pick in 2012. The 21-year-old has 10 goals and 20 points in 24 games this season. He'll probably start out by playing more of a bottom-six role, so his fantasy upside will be limited. Hudon will be taking Christian Thomas' place in the lineup.

Charles Hudon has been called up by Montreal.

He is expected to join the Canadiens for practice on Wednesday morning. Hudon doesn't have any NHL experience yet, but the 21-year-old has been very productive in the minors.

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Charles Hudon from the minors.

Hudon had a very strong rookie season in Hamilton this year, and he's being rewarded with a call up because the Bulldogs didn't make the AHL playoffs. Hudon has some good upside but he probably won't see any action for the Canadiens down the stretch. The 20-year-old had 19 goals and 57 points in 75 AHL games in 2014-15.

Charles Hudon admitted that he still isn't fully recovered from a back injury that limited him to 56 games with Chicoutimi of the QMJHL last season.

The ailment also prevented him from playing for Team Canada at the world juniors, so he's hoping to get another chance this year. "What happened last year was a very difficult thing for me to deal with – a huge disappointment," Hudon told "It was so hard for me to come back to Canada with nothing hanging around my neck. Right now I'm taking things day by day; employing the same strategy that (Team Canada coach Brent) Sutter is using with our team. Take things one day at a time and don't think about tomorrow." Hudon had 30 goals and 71 points with the Sagueneens in 2012-13. He added three points in nine AHL contests with Hamilton at the end of the season.
