- After a brief warm-up on the soccer field, prospects and invitees began Day 4 of the Canadiens’ Development Camp on Wednesday by being split up into two separate groups. While one group took part in a strength and conditioning seminar focused on long-term development and injury prevention with Pierre Allard, the other hit the ice for a skills session with coaches Sebastien Bordeleau, Donald Dufresne, Nick Carriere and Francis Bouillon. Then, the two groups switched places.
- Newcomer Andrew Shaw made his first visit to the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard on Wednesday since being acquired by the Canadiens in a trade back on June 24. Shaw was given a tour of the practice facility, including the dressing room where he met the media while donning his brand new No. 65 jersey.
“I like the city. Everyone is very welcoming. It’s a huge hockey city. I’m excited for that, as well,” said Shaw, who will spend Wednesday afternoon looking for a new home. “I only live three-and-a-half hours down the 401, so I expect my family is going to be here most games.”
- One scrimmage is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. Team A, coached by Donald Dufresne and Francis Bouillon, will take on Team B, coached by Nick Carriere and Ken Morin. Michael Pezzetta joins Brett Lernout and Matthew Bradley on the injured list and will not play. Meanwhile, both Jake Evans and Luke Ripley have returned to the University of Notre Dame.
