Yesterday, we shared Georges Laraque's strong words, stating emphatically that Martin St-Louis doesn't like physical play and that it is absolutely necessary to have Michael Pezzetta on the ice since Arber Xhekaj was sent down to Laval.

His statements circulated widely on the web, and without claiming that St-Louis based his decision on this, it seems that Laraque's message got through.

Indeed, Joel Armia was doing extra time on the ice today, while Pezzetta had a regular practice with his teammates.

This signals the end of his purgatory, and he should play tonight.


"Joel Armia is doing extra time this morning. Michael Pezzetta is not, so he will play tonight."

As mentioned earlier, we don't really think that Martin St-Louis is making this change to please Georges Laraque, but it remains that the former enforcer will be pleased to hear this news.
