Michael McCarron scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 8-3 win over the Penguins in the opening game of the rookie tournament.

After playing 20 games with the Canadiens last year, we expected McCarron to dominate during this tournament and he got off to a nice start. "We weathered the storm early," said McCarron. "(Goaltender Charlie Lindgren) and our defence held us in for the first 10, 15 minutes. We were really struggling but we’re together in that room. We’re all good friends and it translates on the ice." If he keeps playing well in the rookie tournament and into training camp, there could be a spot waiting for him on the NHL roster this year.

Mike McCarron, who stands at 6-foot-6, weighed in at 226 pounds on Thursday, which is down from 237.

Typically you hear about younger players putting on weight, but McCarron was a different case. "It’s all about the diet, especially for a big man," he added. "If you’re not eating good, you’re not going to put on muscle and you’re not going to lose that body fat. It’s a really fine line and it took me until I’m 21 years old to figure it out, which is a bit of a bummer. I wish I knew that at 18." He's done things like cut down on carbs and replacing what he used to eat for snacks with things like a fruit or chicken breast. McCarron had a goal, two points, and 37 penalty minutes in 20 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season.
