Canadiens Camp: Gomez misses scrimmage

BROSSARD, Que. -- Montreal Canadiens center Scott Gomez did not take part in the first scrimmage of training camp Saturday.

Gomez was on the ice when his group began its first practice session of the day, but he was not out there towards the end.

It is unclear why he left. Gomez did not take the ice for the scrimmage. The Canadiens should provide an update later in the day.

The scrimmage gave the crowd of more than 1,000 people their first chance to watch defenseman Alexei Yemelin in action, seven years after the Canadiens made him the 84th pick in the 2004 Entry Draft. Also, hulking 2010 first round pick Jarred Tinordi was throwing his 6-foot-6, 215-pound body around with a few bone-crunching hits in the early going.

Canadiens Camp: Markov missing, Cole on top line?

BROSSARD, Que. -- The Montreal Canadiens are holding their first day on ice at training camp 2012 on Saturday with 60 of the 64 players here strapping on the skates.

The biggest omissions is defenseman Andrei Markov, who is still recovering from December knee surgery and said Friday he is not sure when he will be able to return. In addition, 2009 first-round pick Louis Leblanc is not skating as he, too, recovers from May shoulder surgery, and fellow prospects Joonas Nattinen (second round, 2009) and Olivier Fortier (second round, 2007) are also injured.

The Canadiens have split the remaining 60 players into three groups, and the way they've been split is of some interest because each of them feature three forwards that could make up the team's top three lines when the regular season begins.
