That's fantastic! Martin St-Louis has made a change that should alter the team's dynamics.

Indeed, as Tanner Pearson was playing on the team's first power play following Sean Monahan's departure, he has now been replaced.

Alex Newhook has been used by the coach alongside Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, and Michael Matheson. It's a really positive sign.

The Canadiens have two afternoon games this weekend. One could say the timing would be perfect for the return of the number 15.


In my opinion, he will likely return to play tomorrow; otherwise, the coach wouldn't have placed him on the first power-play unit.
