Shawn Belle Called Up

Shawn Belle takes a hit during AHL actionPresumably because Marc-AndrĂ© Bergeron is not yet finished his conditioning stint in Hamilton, the Canadiens have called up big defenceman Shawn Belle from the Hamilton Bulldogs; Belle will dress in Thursday’s home-opener against the Avalanche.

A surprising call-up given Bergeron, Weber and the potential of P.K. Subban but I’m personally looking forward to seeing what Belle can do for our struggling defence. The young guys, Subban especially, need to stay in Hamilton and gain experience – the Habs have a history of rushing these kids up too quickly and it never pays off.
