Tonight, at 7:30 p.m., the Montreal Canadiens' rookies will face the Buffalo Sabres' prospects in the first match of the rookie tournament.

Many young players will notably have the opportunity to showcase themselves to the Canadiens' management, hoping to cause a surprise and possibly start with a lead at the actual training camp.
However, journalist at Radio-Canada, Alexandre Gascon, revealed bad news for Habs fans. Indeed, defenseman Jayden Struble, who was selected in the second round of the 2019 draft, was absent from training this morning and was not listed in the defensive pairs for tonight's game.
Has the 22-year-old back suffered an injury in the last few days? One thing is for sure, it's rather disappointing news as it was his first participation in the rookie tournament, having spent the last four seasons with Northeastern University. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to see him in action in the upcoming games.
Known for his very physical style of play, the Canadiens' prospect scored one goal and assisted on eleven others (12 points) in 31 games in the collegiate ranks in 2022-2023, while accumulating 56 penalty minutes. He notably joined the Laval Rocket at the end of last season, playing eleven games with the Habs farm team.
There is no doubt that he will have an important role in Jean-François Houle's defense this year, and we are eager to follow his performances to witness the progress he has made over the past few years.
