Worrisome: What is happening with Cole Caufield? Could the forward be injured?

Last year, Cole Caufield suffered a shoulder injury and eventually opted for surgery. He ended up missing several months of action for a total of 36 games.

Back in good shape at the beginning of training camp, the young forward has been slow to get going. While his performances haven't been disastrous, many are concerned about his goal tally being much lower than desired.

Is Cole Caufield playing injured? Is he bothered by the same injury that led to his surgery? These are questions that keep coming up, and the Canadiens made an announcement that adds even more suspicion.

Indeed, Caufield was absent from the morning skate for a day of treatments. He shouldn't miss tonight's game, as Emil Heineman has been sent down to Laval. The Canadiens wouldn't have made this move if Cole couldn't be in uniform.


However, it's concerning, especially since the team hasn't played in six days, and there haven't been any practices either, except for yesterday.

It will definitely be crucial to keep an eye on how he performs on the ice tonight.
