Laval Rocket vs. Toronto Marlies
How to watch
After a sterling professional debut. Montreal Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield will look to continue his production on Saturday afternoon when the Laval Rocket play the Toronto Marlies at Coca Cola Coliseum.
Jan Myšàk has been out with an injury and skated with the team in their pre-game skate on Friday. He made the trip but is not expected to be back in the lineup on Saturday. Arsen Khisamutdinov is also sitting out.
