A day after their scrimmage at the Bell Centre, the Montreal Canadiens are right back to action tonight as they host the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils will have a split squad lineup, with P.K. Subban and Jack Hughes playing in Newark while Nico Hischier is among those making the trip to Montreal.

For the Canadiens, Cayden Primeau and Carey Price will be the goaltenders. Jake Evans will make his NHL pre-season debut after missing all of last year’s camp. Among the regulars for tonight’s game are Shea Weber and Victor Mete on defence and the line of Jonathan Drouin, Max Domi, and Artturi Lehkonen.

Puck drop is at 7:00 p.m. as most weeknight home games have been moved up 30 minutes compared to a year ago. The preseason will allow people to get used to this change.

This is the first of seven pre-season games for the Canadiens this season. Game thread to come later today.

Another piece of news is that Liam Hawel, the lone tryout at camp, was released from training camp. It remains to be seen if he will sign an AHL contract or be an invite to Laval Rocket training camp.
