Brendan Gallagher has made the Canadiens' opening-night roster.
Montreal selected the 5-foot-9, 182-pound forward with the fifth pick in the 2010 draft and all he's done is put up some big point totals. In his first AHL action, he has recorded 20 points in 36 games. Coach Michel Therrien said the 20-year-old made himself nearly impossible to cut. "He has a tremendous work ethic, he's always around the puck, he's always going to the net," Therrien said. "And he's a good teammate as well. He always has a smile on his face."
