Manny Malhotra has retired from hockey and could be joining the Canucks organization soon.

Malhotra got a professional tryout with Columbus in March, but was unable to land an NHL gig. The 36-year-old spent parts of three seasons with Vancouver during his playing days. "We’re looking into that," Canucks GM Jim Benning said of adding Malhotra to the organization. "But we don’t have any announcement right now." Malhotra scored 116 goals and 295 points in 991 games with the Rangers, Stars, Blue Jackets, Sharks, Canucks and Canadiens.

Manny Malhotra was released from his professional tryout on Tuesday.

Malhotra has been playing with the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL. His professional career could be over as he played 991 NHL games and couldn't crack an NHL roster this season.
Mar 5 - 10:19 AM

Manny Malhotra has inked a tryout agreement with the AHL's Lake Erie Monsters.

The Monsters are affiliated with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Malhotra has appeared in 991 NHL games and is noteworthy for his success on the draw. He isn't a significant offensive contributor though, especially at this stage of his career.

Manny Malhotra will not be re-signed by the Montreal Canadiens.

Malhotra has completed his one-year, $850,000 contract. He had just a goal and four points in 58 contests, but he excelled on the draw with a 59.3% success rate. His faceoff skills might land him another one-way deal over the summer.

Manny Malhotra still wants to play next season.

He will be an unrestricted free agent in July and thinks he can contribute. Malhotra is excellent on faceoffs (59.3 percent), but he won't post anything meaningful offensively.

Manny Malhotra and Brian Flynn will be scratched on Friday night from Game One against Tampa Bay.

Malhotra has been stapled to the press box for the majority of the season, and wasn't producing while he was in either. Flynn however has a goal and two assists in five games against Ottawa in the first round. Bear him in mind if he ever gets back into the lineup and you need a spot-start.

Manny Malhotra and Brian Flynn were held out of Sunday's tilt with the Florida Panthers.

While Malhotra lacks fantasy value with just four points this season, Flynn had been finding ways to contribute by producing 17 points, 37 hits, and 39 blocks over 54 games with Buffalo. However, he's completely failed to hit the score sheet in seven games with Montreal, nullifying whatever potential fantasy value he could've had.

Manny Malhotra, Brian Flynn, Mike Weaver and Sergei Gonchar will be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Winnipeg.

Tom Gilbert will also miss the game, but in his case he will be out because of injury. If Gonchar ever gets back into Montreal's lineup, he could have some value in deeper fantasy leagues but Malhotra, Flynn and Weaver have no fantasy relevance.

Manny Malhotra and Brian Flynn will be scratched against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

While Flynn continues to recover from an upper body injury, Malhotra will continue to see his role diminished having played just four times in the month of March.

Manny Malhotra will center the fourth line between Brandon Prust and Dale Weise in Tuesday night's tilt with the Florida Panthers.

Malhotra's only contribution to the fantasy world is his ability to win faceoffs. While he ranks 39th overall in total wins with 507, he's also among the league leaders in winning percentage just a tick below 60%.

Manny Malhotra scored a goal in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Malhotra opened the scoring just five minutes into the first period when he beat Leafs' goaltender Jonathan Bernier. The goal was Malhotra's first of the season and first since joining the Montreal Canadiens last summer. The 34-year-old has just three points on the season, but two of those have come in his last two games. He became the 500th different player to score a goal in a Montreal Canadiens uniform. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Manny Malhotra will tag in for the flu-stricken Alex Galchenyuk on Thursday night versus Florida.

Malhotra will center Michael Bournival and Christian Thomas on Montreal fourth line. However, neither of these three forwards have any fantasy value.

Manny Malhotra will be a healthy scratch Wednesday night in Ottawa.

Maholtra was in the lineup for the Canadiens last two games but won’t dress Wednesday. It’s been a rough year for the former number seventh overall pick as he’s recorded just one assist in 48 games played without scoring a single goal. Jiri Sekac will take Maholtra’s spot in the lineup Wednesday.

Manny Malhotra, Gabriel Dumont and Mike Weaver are healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Boston.

The Canadiens will go with a fourth line of Christian Thomas, Jacob De La Rose and Michael Bournival. None of the Habs' scratches have any fantasy value.
