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 pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
