Following yesterday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins, the Canadiens rookies will take to the ice once again tonight as they face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7:30 PM EDT.

The Habs' lineup will look like this:

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.
Players to watch for Montreal
  • #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.
Highly touted prospects Charles Hudon and Michael McCarron will also be action for the Habs this evening.

However, we created a Twitter list so you can follow along with the action, and our very own Andrew Zadarnowski is present at the game to keep you up to date.
