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.
Quote of the Day

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
