There were two unexpected forwards at the Canadiens' practice, and we're not talking about Josh Anderson

The Canadiens will play their 38th game of the season tonight, live from the Bell Centre. For the occasion, the Buffalo Sabres are the visitors.

We had the pleasant surprise of Josh Anderson's presence during practice at the Bell Centre, but there were also two forwards who have been sidelined due to injury for a long time who were in attendance.

Indeed, Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook were on the bench cheering on their teammates and listening to the coaches' instructions. Just because they can't be on the ice doesn't mean they can't learn.

For Dach, he is often seen with the team in this way. He could be near his family in Saskatchewan, but he stays with his teammates and gets involved as much as he can.


Remember, he got injured in the second game of the season. He is still present at most practices and games. That speaks volumes about him and his level of commitment.

It's even contagious, as Newhook came along with him. The big difference is that the number 15 will be back in the game in the coming weeks, and it's in his best interest to be ready when he returns.

In short, it's all to their credit, especially since they were all smiles and seemed to have a very good mindset.
