Canadiens recall Daniel Carr from St. John’s

Watch as Daniel Carr of the Montreal Canadiens scores his first NHL goal on his first NHL shift against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Montreal Canadiens recalled forward Daniel Carr from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

The move came a day after the Canadiens announced that forward Paul Byron will be out a week with a lower body injury. Carr is to join the team Friday in time for a trip to Toronto to play the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Carr was returned to St. John’s on Jan. 14 after posting five goals and seven points in 17 NHL games.

Defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, who also suffered a lower body injury in a 4-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday, is listed as day to day.
