The Montreal Canadiens continue to look for their first win of the pre-season as they head to Ottawa to face the Senators in their fourth pre-season game. This the first of four games against Ottawa.

Jonathan Drouin will make his first pre-season appearance, and will play with Owen Beck and Mike Hoffman as the Canadiens continue to get a long look at the 33rd overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

The good news for Montreal is that Nick Suzuki and Josh Anderson participated in practice on Saturday with regular jerseys and have been cleared for contact.

Kaiden Guhle will get another chance to play, this time next to Chris Wideman. Jordan Harris and Otto Leskinen, and Mike Matheson and Justin Barron will be the other pairings.

Cayden Primeau will get the start for the Canadiens with Kevin Poulin backing him up.
