McCarron will be in the Canadiens' lineup on Tuesday.
McCarron served as a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will replace David Desharnais in the lineup tonight. Desharnais is a potential trade piece for the Canadiens, so they will scratch him as asset protection before the trade deadline. McCarron has one goal and four assists (five points) in 21 games this season.
The Canadiens have recalled Mike McCarron from St. John’s (AHL).
McCarron, 21, has picked up four goals and eight assists (12 points) in 21 games with St. John’s this season. He was called-up prior to Saturday’s game, but will not draw into the lineup vs. Colorado. He has one goal and one assist in 20 career NHL games.
