The return of two injured players: several movements expected in the coming days with the Canadiens and the Rocket

Once again this year, the Canadiens and the Rocket haven't been spared from injuries. The good news is that Martin St-Louis and his team have the same record as last year at this time, even though injuries have already occurred for the Habs this year.

Only four points out of a playoff spot, everything is still possible for the Canadiens. A small winning streak, and it would become even more accessible.

For the Rocket, despite an almost disastrous start to the season, they are only three points out of a playoff spot. The return of key players is imminent, and everything should fall into place.

Indeed, Lias Andersson and Sean Farrell should soon be back in action.


"Quietly, the team is 3 points out of the playoffs as we speak. Reinforcements are expected very soon with Lias Andersson and Sean Farrell, two Top 6 forwards, and probably a defenseman from Montreal." - Anthony Marcotte, BPM Sports

This means there will be more options for the Canadiens in case of injuries, and there will inevitably be a defenseman sent down to the Rocket.

With their excellent performance, we can forget about Jayden Struble and Justin Barron. It will undoubtedly be Jordan Harris or Gustav Lindstrom, through waivers.

In short, the injured players will also return to the Canadiens, and everything should fall into place. As mentioned earlier, last year, the Habs had the same record with a relatively healthy team. This year, the important injuries arrived early, and the players survived.

Therefore, expect several movements within the organization, from Montreal to Laval and from Laval to Trois-Rivières.
