With Gustav Lindstrom being placed on waivers, we expected Rafaël Harvey-Pinard to make his return to the lineup imminently.

It was even surprising not to see him play on Wednesday night in Philadelphia. The team probably decided to keep him in Montreal for an extra day to return in a better context.

Indeed, Martin St-Louis has just confirmed that RHP will make a comeback tonight against the Sharks.

"Forward Rafaël Harvey-Pinard will return to the lineup tonight against the Sharks. Emil Heineman won't play."


- Montreal Canadiens

So, Emil Heineman is the one sitting out, while Mitchell Stephens is crucial for faceoffs on the fourth line.

RHP will get a chance to stretch his legs against the worst team in the NHL. It's still a notable return. The forward is an important player who is very versatile and has an impeccable work ethic.
