Yesterday, BPM Sports radio host Maxime Truman surprised everyone by revealing major information regarding the Montreal Canadiens' 5th overall pick, David Reinbacher.

He stated that the young defenseman for the Habs was suffering from a condition called Osgood-Schlatter disease, which was causing serious knee problems for several high-level athletes.

Truman mentioned that the CH prospect had to wear braces during the intra-squad game at the end of the organization's development camp, as he was experiencing intense pain, according to his sources. This statement quickly spread across the web, greatly worrying Canadiens fans.

"Maxime Truman revealed that the young defenseman (Reinbacher) has problems with both knees. In fact, this is due to him having Osgood-Schlatter disease, a 'common cause of knee pain in children and adolescents.' The disease causes cartilage and bone deterioration in both knees." - DansLesCoulisses



However, a few hours later, TVA Sports published an article debunking the rumor.

In fact, journalist Nicolas Cloutier contacted Reinbacher's coach at Kloten HC to learn more about his physical condition. Jeff Tomlinson was very encouraging in his statements, mentioning that the team doctors had never diagnosed such a condition and that the inflammation in Reinbacher's knees was primarily due to the extensive minutes he played during the season.

"Contacted by TVASports.ca, Kloten's head coach in Switzerland for the 2022-2023 season, Jeff Tomlinson, denied the story after conducting additional checks with the team's doctor.

When you sent me this message, I immediately raised an eyebrow because I am familiar with this disease, and it was never mentioned during the season with our doctor.

I checked again with him, and he was very clear: 'No, absolutely not.' Towards the end of the season, we observed some inflammation in his knees, but it was due to wear and tear since he was given a lot of playing time." - TVA Sports

When contacted by TVA Sports, Maxime Truman doubled down and confirmed that he had no reason to doubt the information he received regarding the young Canadiens defenseman. However, the fact that the team doctors denied this rumor is certainly a reassuring sign.

This will be followed closely in the coming days, as more information should emerge regarding Reinbacher's health. One thing is certain: we sincerely hope he is doing well and will arrive at training camp in top form!
