Desharnais A Healthy Scratch For Habs

Desharnais_Montreal_2013 [1]David Desharnais, Montreal’s assist leader in 2011-12, will be a healthy scratch when the Canadiens host the Blues on Tuesday night at the Bell Center, according to TVA Sports.

The decision comes after Desharnais was demoted to the fourth line in the hopes of sparking his offensive output.

The 27-year-old has just one point in 15 games this year, his first of a four-year, $14 million extension signed in March.

“He wants success and we’re working with him to make sure that he’s going to get some success,” head coach Michel Therrien told the Montreal Gazette. “But obviously, the success is not there.”
