The Montreal Canadiens have announced the players who will take part in the team’s 2021-22 training camp.
There will be 70 players in camp, and they will be split in three groups. Groups A and B will be players who will likely take part in pre-season games, while 18 players are currently in Group C, which will likely be a group for players bound for the AHL or ECHL.
Of note, tryout Cody Goloubef is with the group of players in the “minor league” group while Mattias Norlinder, Kaiden Guhle, and Jan Mysak are with the main training group.
There are 30 forwards, 17 defencemen, and five goalies in the main group with 10 forwards, six defencemen, and two goalies in Group C. As camp goes on, more players will be sent to Group C. Currently there are Junior-aged players like Joshua Roy, Daniil Sobolev, and Joe Vrbetic with Group C who will get extra time after Rookie Camp before returning to Junior.
The players will be in camp for physicals on Wednesday, and the first practice will be Thursday at 10:00 a.m. The Red vs White Team Scrimmage will be Sunday at 3:00 p.m. The team’s first pre-season game is Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
