The Canadiens are about to make several important announcements

Today is the last day before the opening of the free agent market.

This also means that it is the final moment for a team to make a qualifying offer to its restricted free agents, to prevent them from becoming completely free by tomorrow noon.

The Montreal Canadiens have several players in this situation in their organization currently and several major announcements are expected to be made soon by the management.

Here is the list of restricted free agents waiting for a qualifying offer:

- Denis Gurianov
- Alex Newhook
- Rafaël Harvey-Pinard
- Jesse Ylönen
- Joël Teasdale
- Nicolas Beaudin
- Mitchell Stephens
- Lucas Condotta

Kent Hughes has until 5pm to qualify his free agents, otherwise they will be able to test the free agent market tomorrow.

Newhook and Harvey-Pinard are a given, but it will be interesting to see what happens with Gurianov.

More details to follow.
