MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens announced on Tuesday that 26 players will participate in the team’s rookie camp from September 11-16. The Club will participate in a rookie tournament which will take place from September 11-13, in London, Ontario (99 Dundas Street, London, Ontario).

The tournament features rookie players from four NHL clubs; the Canadiens, the Ottawa Senators, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Each team will play three games in three days. 

Among the 26 players to participate in the rookie camp, there will be 15 forwards, nine defensemen and two goaltenders. Sixteen (16) players at camp are Canadiens draft selections, including three of the five players selected by Montreal at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Twenty-three (23) of the 26 players also took part in the Canadiens’ development camp last July.

St. John’s IceCaps coaching staff led by head coach Sylvain Lefebvre, along with Donald Dufresne, Vincent Riendeau and Nick Carrière will handle coaching responsibilities for games and practices.
