Mitchell (illness) will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old pivot has gone scoreless in 11 games this season, and he's nothing more than a rotational player at this stage in his career, so he can be safely overlooked in all season-long formats.

Mitchell (illness) will remain out of the lineup for Thursday's clash with the Coyotes, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell will miss his third consecutive outing due to his illness. Even when healthy, the center is not a lock for the lineup and is averaging a mere 9:21 of ice time when he does suit up. Without a consistent role and regular minutes, the 2004 fourth-round draft pick will continue to offer minimal fantasy value.

Mitchell will sit out of Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets due to an illness, Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell has been struggling this season, going pointless through 10 games, while firing just eight shots on net. His next chance to get into the lineup will be Thursday against the Coyotes, but until then, the Habs will roll with seven defensemen.

Mitchell will replace Ales Hemsky in the lineup for Sunday's road contest against the Rangers, Luc Gelinas of RDS reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell doesn't get much ice time when he does play -- he's averaged 12:38 of ice time with the Habs the past two seasons -- but he's collected a 19 goals over 159 games and that's a steady clip for a fourth-liner just hoping to avoid the press box on any given night.

Mitchell appears to have won a spot as the fourth line center after the Canadiens waived or cut several forwards Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

A gallery of forwards got fourth-line minutes during the preseason, but Michael McCarron, Daniel Carr and Peter Holland were removed from Montreal's preseason roster Saturday. That leaves Mitchell in a good position to open the regular season, centering the fourth line. He's good on faceoffs and has been penalty-kill staple for the Habs, but coach Claude Julien, who made Mitchell a healthy scratch three times during last season's six-game playoff series against the Rangers, appears to be on the lookout for a replacement.

Mitchell (illness) will be in the lineup Wednesday night against host Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

A sneaky scoring option in the bottom six, Mitchell has eight goals and nine assists with three games remaining in the regular season. His limited role makes him a punt play in most daily settings, but he'll aid the Habs in the dot since he's won 400 of 734 faceoffs this season, good for a robust 54.5 winning percentage.

Mitchell (illness) took part in the morning skate Monday, but will not be in the lineup for the evening's contest against the Panthers, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell's presence at practice could mean he's recovered from the illness, but he will skip a third straight contest Monday nonetheless. The veteran forward's next chance to return to action arrives Wednesday against the Sabres, but his status shouldn't be of much concern in fantasy leagues given his lack of production this season.

Mitchell (illness) will not suit up Saturday against the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Panthers anyways, but the veteran center will stay on the sidelines with the flu now. He didn't have a very productive March, averaging 11:22 of ice time, with one goal and one assist over 12 games. His next chance to crack the lineup will be Monday in Florida.

Mitchell scored Montreal's first goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win in Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell had gone 39 games without a goal before redirecting Andrei Markov's shot to give the Habs a 1-0 goal early in the first period. After starting the season with five goals over the first 10 games, Mitchell has scored just three times since.

Mitchell notched his sixth and seventh goals of the season in Thursday's 5-2 victory over New Jersey, rounding out his line with a plus-2 rating and two PIM.

EDGE Analysis

Over the prior dozen games, Mitchell had collected exactly zero points and eight shots on net, so this pretty much came out of nowhere. His four shots in this one represent a season high, but he still skated a modest 13:34 with no power-play time. Perhaps those in super-deep fantasy formats can find a place for him, especially with Montreal so thin at center right now, but the vast majority of leagues should have better options on the waiver wire.
