After scoring one goal through two pre-season games, the Canadiens will look to get their first win of the 2022-23 pre-season when they host the Winnipeg Jets for a rare cross-conference pre-season game.

Some veterans will get their first pre-season action of the year in this one, after sitting out the first two games, like the line of Evgenii Dadonov, Christian Dvorak, and Brendan Gallagher.

Youngsters Kaiden Guhle, Mattias Norlinder, and Arber Xhekaj get their second pre-season games.

Cole Caufield and Kirby Dach will play together, joined by Emil Heineman.

Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau are the goaltenders for the Canadiens.

For the Jets veterans Pierre-Luc Dubois and Nate Schmidt lead the way. 2022 first-round pick Brad Lambert will also play in the arena where he was drafted for the first time.

David Rittich is expected to get the start for Winnipeg.
