BROSSARD – The Canadiens held a practice at the Bell Sports Complex on Monday morning.
With gold-medalist Carey Price enjoying a much-deserved day off after returning from Sochi, Francis Desrosiers from the QMJHL’s Sherbrooke Phoenix took to the ice with the Habs. He’ll get some quality goaltending advice from Peter Budaj and Stephane Waite.
Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban, who arrived in Montreal alongside Price on Monday morning, did not skate and will also benefit from a day of rest.
Jarred Tinordi, recalled from Hamilton on Sunday, was at practice with his new teammates.
"It’s always a bit of surprise to get called up; you never really expect it. But I had a stretch of about two or three weeks where I was playing well and feeling good, so it’s good to be recognized for that with a call-up," the towering blueliner revealed after practice.
Michael Bournival (concussion symptoms) did not skate, while Brandon Prust (upper-body) skated on the other ice surface. Both are day-to-day.
