David Schlemko News

David Schlemko    D  Canadiens

 

 

David Schlemko has fit in nicely with the Montreal Canadiens. A lengthy hand injury sidelined him for the first 25 games of the season, but he's looked good in his first two games with Montreal. Even though he has no points in two contests, Schlemko has moved the puck efficiently. He also has a plus-2 rating so far this season.

Schlemko had two shots and 15:54 of ice time in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Senators. Schlemko also played 1:42 on the second power-play unit in what was the 30-year-old's season debut, after missing the first 25 games with a hand injury. He replaced Victor Mete, who had regressed to the point where head coach Claude Julien had to pick specific spots for the rookie's shifts. Schlemko's ability to log minutes against any opposing player, regardless of size or experience, will make it easier on the defensive corps as the Canadiens get by without top blueliner Shea Weber (lower body).

David Schlemko will draw into the Canadiens' lineup on Wednesday. This will be the 30-year-old blueliner's first game with Montreal. He missed the start of the season due to a hand injury and got back into game shape by participating in a three-game AHL conditioning stint. He scored two goals and 18 points in 62 games with San Jose in 2016-17. Victor Mete will be a healthy scratch as a result.

Schlemko (hand) was confirmed to be in the lineup Wednesday night versus the Senators. The Alberta native reportedly will replace Victor Mete, but coach Claude Julien was cryptic when asked who Schlemko will be paired with in the next contest, as the bench boss replied with "everybody," according to Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal. For what it's worth, we're projecting his defensive partner to be Jakub Jerabek, comprising the third pair.

Schlemko (hand) told reporters after practice Tuesday that he's ready to play Wednesday against the Senators, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. Head coach Claude Julien is still mulling over having Schlemko return Wednesday, but did have the Albertan alternating on the second-unit power play. If Weber's active against the Senators, we suspect the roster casualty would be rookie Victor Mete, who had 6:11 of ice time in Monday's win over the Blue Jackets. Schlemko's return would allow Julien to spread out the minutes out more evenly heading into a back-to-back set that has Montreal playing in Detroit on Thursday.

Schlemko (hand) won't play Monday against the Blue Jackets. However, head coach Claude Julien says that he be in the lineup at some point this week. The Habs play Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, so any of those games could mark Schlemko's Montreal debut. Since the 30-year-old hasn't played for the Canadiens yet, it is hard to know exactly what he role will be.

Schlemko (hand) practiced with the Canadiens on Sunday after playing two games with Laval of the American Hockey League over the weekend, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. Head coach Claude Julien declared Schlemko "ready to play," but would not confirm the defenseman's status for Monday's home game against the Blue Jackets. The 30-year-old blueliner has been with the Habs since the summer, so he understands the system. All that's left is to get him into a game and adjust after a prolonged stretch away from the pace of the NHL.

David Schlemko was back with the Canadiens at Sunday's practice. Schlemko recently had a two-game conditioning stint with the AHL's Laval Rocket and could finally make his season debut with Montreal on Monday night. "I'd like to play, but we're a quarter of the way into the season. If they think I need a little more work, then that's what I'll do," said Schlemko. "I'm just excited to be close to playing again." Coach Claude Julien won't make a decision until after the morning skate or closer to game time.

Schlemko's (hand) status for his season debut will be decided prior to Monday's contest against Columbus. Schlemko has been dealing with a hand injury and eventually underwent surgery in October. The 6-foot-1 blueliner tallied 18 points for San Jose last year and can be a big boost to a Montreal team in need of some bodies on defense.
