Major: The Canadiens made an offer to Justin Barron that he declined

Published February 13, 2024 at 6:31 PM

As announced by the Montreal Canadiens, Samuel Montembeault received a special visitor at the Bell Centre on Sunday. The General Manager of the St. Louis Blues was present to give him a special gift.

Indeed, Doug Armstrong was also the GM of Team Canada for the last World Championship won by Canada, where Samuel was the starting goaltender.

Armstrong took advantage of his visit to Montreal to present him with his championship ring. An invaluable and well-deserved gift.

Another Canadiens player also had his ring but decided not to attend. Justin Barron also won gold with Canada, but he was in Toronto with the Rocket.

The Canadiens organization offered him to come to Montreal and miss a Rocket game to receive his ring. Barron declined this offer. Yet, he would have made the trip with Joshua Roy, who was called up on the same day.

It speaks volumes about his priorities. He will receive his ring sooner or later, but the game he would have missed could not be replayed. The Rocket aims to make the playoffs, and every game is crucial. A clear demonstration of maturity from the young defenseman.
