Phillip Danault (born February 24, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Danault played with the Victoriaville Tigres and Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He was selected 26th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks.

On March 30, 2012, he was assigned to the Blackhawks AHL affiliate, the Rockford Icehogs.[1]

In the 2014–15 season, Danault was recalled from the IceHogs by the Blackhawks and made his NHL debut on November 22, 2014, in a 7-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.[2]

Danault was initially assigned to the Rockford IceHogs to begin the 2015–16 season. On December 18, 2015, Danault was recalled from Rockford to the Chicago Blackhawks and on December 20, 2015, he got his first NHL point with an assist on Andrew Shaw's goal in a 4-3 win against the San Jose Sharks.[3] He scored his first career NHL goal on January 8, 2016, which was a game-winning goal in a 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres. After solidifying a role amongst the Blackhawks fourth line and contributing with 5 points in 30 games, on February 26, 2016, Danault was acquired by the Montreal Canadiens, along with Chicago's second round draft pick in 2018, in exchange for forwards Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann.[4] On July 5, 2016, Danault re-signed with the Canadiens on a two-year contract.[5]
