Canadiens rookie tournament roster
- As we previously reported, the Habs are without first round pick Noah Juulsen who suffered a concussion prior to the beginning of camp.
- #73 Angelo Miceli came to camp as an invite, and could very well be leaving with a minor league contract. The invitee had three assists against the Penguins rookies yesterday.
- #38 Nikita Scherbak will be in action once again this evening. The electrifying 2014 first round pick is poised to make his pro hockey debut this season in Hamilton, but has hopes he could crack the NHL lineup.
- #43 Daniel Carr was able to find the back of the net against the Penguins yesterday, and will hope to do so again against the Leafs tonight. The Alberta native had a strong rookie season in the AHL in 2014-15, potting 24 goals.
