The Montreal Canadiens announced this afternoon that defenceman Noah Juulsen was cleared to play and will join the Laval Rocket today.

Noah was given clearance by the team doctors following his on-ice session today in Brossard. He will join the Rocket tonight in Milwaukee.
Juulsen missed most of training camp and the entire pre-season with lingering effects from his season-ending injury. We shouldn't expect him in action this weekend necessarily. The Rocket play in Milwaukee Saturday night and in Rockford Monday afternoon.
His recovery should be seen as a big positive as he adjusts back to game shape. Expect the Canadiens and Joël Bouchard to take it slow but we could see Juulsen this roadtrip.
After this weekend on the road, the Rocket return home for three games next week.
