The Montreal Canadiens are participating in their third straight rookie tournament against some familiar foes.

On Friday night, they kick off the tournament against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Ricoh Coliseum, home of the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies.

Game time is 7:00 PM EDT, and the game will be broadcast on Leafs TV, but you can also watch it right here [NHL.com]:

Here is the Habs’ roster for the rookie camp.

Here are the confirmed Habs lines for tonight's game versus the Leafs:

Scott Walford has since been deemed out for tonight’s game.

The Leafs team looks dangerous on paper with several big name prospects taking part in the tournament, including Jeremy Bracco, Carl Grundstrom, Timothy Liljegren, and Andrew Neilson.

The Canadiens are going to ice a very young team compared to the other teams who have players with previous professional experience.
