Jake Evans and Luke Ripley leave Habs development camp

Both return to the University of Notre Dame

The Montreal Canadiens announced today that Michael Pezzetta is currently injured, while Jake Evans and Luke Ripley left the camp to return to the University of Notre Dame. Pezzetta joins Matt Bradley and Brett Lernout on the injured list.

Ripley was in camp on a try out basis, while Evans was a seventh round draft pick in 2014 and left an impression before going back.

Evans had eight goals last year at Notre Dame and returns for his junior year.

As NCAA players, they both had to pay their own way and their own expenses while in development camp as they cannot accept anything to maintain their NCAA eligibility.

They may also be returning early to attend summer classes following the long weekend in the United States due to the Fourth of July.

There are still two scrimmages in the development camp, one this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. and the final one tomorrow morning as the camp ends at the Complexe Bell in Brossard.
