The Nashville Predators have added a key offensive forward off Injured Reserve since their last meeting with the Montreal Canadiens, as Filip forsberg has re-entered the fray. Tonight, the Canadiens will counter with a potent option of their own, as Mike Hoffman has recovered from his latest ailment and draws back in.

It’s great for Montreal’s chances of scorng some goals, especially on the power play. Five of Hoffman’s seven points have come on the man advantage, tying him for the team lead with Nick Suzuki despite having half the games played. The timing is a bit unfortunate for Laurent Dauphin, however, as he was hoping to play his first NHL game in nearly three years, against his former team no less, before this news was announced. That will now have to wait until later for the player who has led by example on the Habs’ AHL affiliate.
