Montreal has sent Jacob De La Rose to the AHL.
The Canadiens made the transaction after claiming Paul Byron off waivers from Calgary. De La Rose played 33 games with Montreal last season, but was projected to be the team's 13th forward at the start of 2015-16. Going to the minors will allow him to play far more regularly. Oct 6 - 1:21 PM

Michel Therrien has been impressed with Jacob De La Rose's game since his call-up from Hamilton.

"He's never on the wrong side of the puck," said Therrien. "We're never afraid to give him responsibility. I trust his game." That is some high praise for a 19-year-old rookie who is in his first professional season in North America. De La Rose may end up putting up respectable offensive numbers one day but his fantasy upside remains very limited this season. He has two goals and three points in 13 games with the Canadiens.

Feb 2 - 5:33 PM

Jacob de la Rose has been sent to AHL Hamilton.

The 34th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft will be playing his first season in North America this season. Del la Rose wants to continue to develop after a strong training camp. "I want to work on everything, but I need to keep working on my offense," he said. "It's more that I have to be comfortable with the puck and relax out there. Of course, it's a different game (in North America), there isn't as much ice, it's tighter and the players are better." He was Montreal's final roster cut and could see time with the big club this season as a callup.

Jacob de la Rose has made a great impression on the Canadiens during the early portion of training camp.

"De la Rose showed some poise with the puck," said coach Michel Therrien after Sunday's scrimmage. "He's got everything to be a hockey player. He has size, he can skate. He reads the game really well for a 19-year-old kid." De la Rose was drafted in 2013 early in the second round (34th overall). Montreal may look for him to develop further before giving him an NHL shot, but if he can continue to turn heads then it won't be long before he gets an opportunity.

The Montreal Canadiens selected forward Jacob de la Rose with the 34th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft.

De la Rose represents something of a low-risk, low-reward pick. He's a good bet to contribute at the NHL level despite registering only 12 points in Sweden's second-best league as a 17-year-old. He isn't afraid to get physical and has nice hockey IQ in both ends of the rink. The question is whether he'll develop into anything more than a depth player for Montreal.
