Concern for Nick Suzuki: It's very rare for the captain to have to be absent

Since the beginning of his career, Nick Suzuki hasn't missed a single game. He currently has the third-longest consecutive games streak in the entire NHL with 343, behind Ryan Suter (423) and Brent Burns (812).

Not only is the captain always on the ice during games, but he also participates in practices. Even the day after the All-Star Game, he was present in Brossard for an optional practice. It speaks volumes about his dedication.

It feels like a tank would have to run him over for him to miss a game or practice because he's so resilient, but now he had to take a bit of rest.

Indeed, both Suzuki and Josh Anderson missed the team's practice on Wednesday to receive treatments.


"Forwards Josh Anderson and Nick Suzuki will not participate in today's practice (therapy day)." - Montreal Canadiens

No need to panic, Nick should be back on Thursday night. However, it's still concerning to know that he's bothered enough to miss a practice, considering he's always there.

Let's hope it's nothing serious and gets resolved quickly. The Canadiens already have a lot of injured players, but losing number 14 would be devastating.
