The Montreal Canadiens and Martin St-Louis approached Kirby Dach's injury differently than many teams do with their long-term injured players.

Indeed, the young center has been very involved since day one of his injury, and not just as a bystander. He had a certain influence.

"They want two-way conversations. I don't just have to be there, to be told what to do and think about it: my opinion matters." - Kirby Dach

A very good piece of news came yesterday, Wednesday, as Dach was finally on the ice with his teammates. He was practicing in a non-contact jersey, but the simple fact that he was there is worth gold.


Asked about it later, Trevor Letowski had a smile that spoke volumes. He seemed to think that Dach would return, but he didn't dare to say more.

"We love having him around. He's been participating in pre-scouting meetings for a while now with Martin and me, but to see him on the ice like that, it's exciting. He's part of our future." - Trevor Letowski

So no, a date for his return to play hasn't been confirmed yet, but it seems like it will happen this season, barring any surprises.
