Canadian: with Guhle, without Harris and Dvorak against the Rangers

Canadian: with Guhle, without Harris and Dvorak against Rangers


MONTREAL | There are now two more cripples in the already overflowing infirmary of the Canadian. Jordan Harris and Christian Dvorak will miss the game against the New York Rangers. 

Harris did not participate in morning practice. At the CH, we talk about an injury to the upper body.

In the case of Dvorak, it is the other fairly classic discomfort: the lower body. In the last game, Dvorak took a hard hit from Stefan Noesen of the Hurricanes. He had missed a few appearances before returning to the game.

Martin St-Louis will therefore still have to juggle with two new injuries.

“If it starts to get thinner? It's been a long time since it started, said St-Louis with a smile. But you play the hand that is shaken for you. Sometimes there are cards that go in and others that go out. I'm starting to get used to doing that. »

Among the cards that fit, there will be two. Absent for the last two games due to a right shoulder injury, Kaiden Guhle will return to the blue line. He will replace Harris.

“I didn't feel good at the time, I was disappointed since I was already coming back from a long absence, noted Guhle. I found it frustrating, but I suspected that it was not too serious. I chose to rest for a few more days in order to heal properly. »

“I had finished the meeting in Anaheim , but it was also my choice, he continued. I didn't want to leave the team with just five defensemen for two periods. I felt like I could finish the game.

Before returning to play for the game against the Sharks in San Jose, Guhle had missed 23 games with a left knee injury, the result of contact with Aleksander Barkov of the San Jose Panthers. Florida.

A recall for Richard 

With the loss of Dvorak, the CH recalled the striker AnthonyRichard. At the top of the scorers (24) and pointers (55) with the Laval Rocket, Richard will be on his second trip to Montreal.

In seven games this season with the Habs, the winger of 26 years old got two points (one goal, one assist).
