Montreal Canadiens lineup vs. Toronto: Kotkaniemi and Suzuki get another shot

The two youngest players in camp face the Maple Leafs

Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Nick Suzuki are back in the lineup for the Montreal Canadiens as they face the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight at Scotiabank Arena.

Here is the full lineup:

This seems to be an audition for several players. Matthew Peca, Michael Chaput, Hunter Shinkaruk, Kenny Agostino, Jacob de la Rose, and Byron Froese are all battling for the few forward spots that remain.

This could be some of their last games before the Canadiens need to make decisions on waivers.

On defence, Karl Alzner and Xavier Ouellet lead the way. Rinat Valiev, Michal Moravčik, Brett Lernout and Simon Desprès are also battling out for a roster spot as this game will provide a look at most defencemen battling for a spot.

The Canadiens have three games remaining after tonight, and have yet to place any players on waivers. The team still has 43 players at their NHL camp.

We will have a full game thread later today.
