MONTREAL (November 11, 2014) – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced today the acquisition of defenseman Sergei Gonchar from the Dallas Stars, in return for forward Travis Moen.
Gonchar, 40, recorded one assist in three games thus far with the Stars in 2014-15, averaging 13:01 of ice time per game. He missed the first 11 games of the season with a foot injury.
Since he first joined the NHL back in 1994-95, Gonchar has recorded a total of 798 points (219 goals, 579 assists) in 1,256 regular season games. He scored 102 goals on the powerplay, two while shorthanded and 35 winning tallies. The 6' 2'' and 210 lbs forward also served 965 penalty minutes and displays a +26 plus/minus differential.
Both combatants did receive two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct along with fighting majors.
Plan to see more of this pre-dance routine as the season progresses.

Travis Moen never saw it coming Monday night, the skate of Ottawa’s Matt Cullen carving into his face like a scalpel.
“It hit me so fast, I didn’t have time to be scared,” the Canadiens forward said Thursday, speaking in the team’s Bell Centre dressing room after a brief morning skate.
Moen’s injury is a grotesque sight, a beautiful/macabre template for any horror-movie makeup artist.
His Canadiens cap, pulled tightly over his forehead, did little to disguise a ragged stretch of about 50 sutures that begins above the bridge of his nose, curves through his left eyebrow, dips into his eyelid and meanders to the corner of and below the eye.

Word is Moen was treated at the Bell Centre and looks like he will be ok.

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Dallas Stars winger Steve Ott received a match penalty in a scrum that occurred immediately after Saturday’s 4-3 loss to Anaheim and has been suspended awaiting a review Monday with Colin Campbell, the NHL’s chief disciplinarian.
Ott will not be able to play today (Sunday) against Pittsburgh.
A match penalty is given for deliberately injuring an opponent. Ott gouged Anaheim’s Travis Moen in the scrum.
“It was an accident. I didn’t mean to do it,” Ott said.
