Nicolas Deslauriers has left a mark on the fans of the Montreal Canadiens despite his short stint with the team, thanks to his combative playing style.

Primarily used in shorthanded situations, his performance this year has been disappointing, with only 4 points, including 1 goal, in 59 games.His play seems to have slowed down over the past few seasons, reaching a critical point this year.
In fact, head coach John Tortorella often left him on the sidelines, a decision that came as a surprise.In the recent match against the Montreal Canadiens, his absence could have been detrimental to the Flyers in a physical game, as pointed out by Eric Engels of Sportsnet.
"The temperature rises in this match, the Flyers letting the Canadiens know, as expected, at the end of the first period, that they will not be taken down too quickly. Meanwhile, Nicolas Deslauriers is sidelined in Montreal tonight." - Eric Engels

This decision by Tortorella was seen as a lack of respect towards Deslauriers, deprived of playing in front of his loved ones in Montreal. The evening must have been difficult for the veteran, especially with his team's defeat.
