The first line combinations for the CH’ s training camp


This morning is the first on-ice training for the Canadiens’ players. The players present at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard have been divided into two groups: Group A and Group B.

*Please note that Lukas Vejdemo was absent, as well as Corey Perry who did not finish his official quarantine. Against all odds, Tomas Tatar was in group A, while we were told that he would be absent.

Group A

Tomas TatarPhilip DanaultBrendan Gallagher

  • The logic is preserved as Tatar-Danault-Gallagher meet again for a third season.
  • Nick Suzuki is back with Jonathan Drouin following the series. The trio is completed by newcomer Josh Anderson.
  • Claude Julien has often been criticized for not giving ammunition to Kotkaniemi. Now he is flanked by Tyler Toffoli and finds his childhood idol Joel Armia on the other side.
  • Artturi Lehkonen was on the fourth line along with Jake Evans and Paul Byron.
  • Ryan Poehling and Michael Frolik will be looking to join the team and redeem their last season.
Ben ChiarotShea Weber
Joel EdmundsonJeff Petry
Brett Kulak Alexander Romanov
Xavier OuelletVictor Mete
  • Ben Chiarot and Shea Weber were consistent last year, so they are back together.
  • Joel Edmundson will add stability to Jeff Petry who likes to support the offense.
  • Brett Kulak will have the mission to play with rookie Alexander Romanov and help him with his integration into the NHL.
Carey Price
Jake Allen
Michael McNiven

Price will be the starter and Allen the back-up. It remains to be determined who will be the third goalie in the taxi-squad.

Group B

Group B will jump on the ice around 12:30. Players from this group are those who may not be part of the starting line-up on January 13th.
