Karl Alzner will make his 2019-20 pre-season debut as the Montreal Canadiens face the Toronto Marlies Maple Leafs Monday night at the Bell Centre.

Also in the lineup will be Jonathan Drouin who gets another chance with Max Domi and Tomas Tatar as the season approaches. Charles Hudon will play with Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Joel Armia.

With the level of competition, and the season approaching, it would be a good opportunity for some of the bubble players on the Canadiens to step up.

With Carey Price and Keith Kinkaid dressed, it looks like Price will start. Both goalies have already played full pre-season games and there are three games remaining, including Monday’s. Price’s first game was half the game split with Cayden Primeau.

Cale Fleury will also get another look and the pairing of Jeff Petry and Ben Chiarot will get another game in.

The defence pairs have since been corrected.

After Monday night, the Canadiens will head to Toronto on Wednesday before ending the pre-season on Saturday at home against the Ottawa Senators.
