The Montreal Canadiens make a major announcement, and a fan favorite is back

It's with a healthy defensive corps that the Montreal Canadiens began the year 2024. It's good news, but there's congestion both in Montreal and Laval.

Kent Hughes had no choice but to announce the placement of Gustav Lindstrom on waivers. Other teams have 24 hours to claim him, otherwise, he would report to the Rocket.

Kent Hughes would never have done that without a good reason. We know that Rafaël Harvey-Pinard has been practicing with a regular jersey for several days. Moreover, it confirms that David Savard will be in his position, as he missed Monday's practice for a day of treatments.

The organization has not yet, at the time of writing these lines, confirmed his return to play on Wednesday, but if we rely on logic, RHP should be removed from the injured list as soon as Lindstrom's fate is known.


It's excellent news for fans and the team. Finally, reinforcements for the attack, which currently relies on an AHL trio.

Note that Tanner Pearson is also close to returning to play. Let's hope he is productive enough to interest a team before the trade deadline.
