Practice - November 21

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

- After posting a 5-3 victory over the New York Islanders at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Friday night, the Canadiens took part in off-ice workouts on Saturday at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard. Michel Therrien’s troops will be back in action on Sunday night when they play host to the Islanders at the Bell Centre.

- The Canadiens called up Sven Andrighetto from the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps immediately after Friday night’s tilt. He arrived in Montreal on Saturday morning to take part in off-ice activities and meet members of the media, too. The Swiss forward is off to a great start this season, having put up six points in his last three games. He scored two goals on Friday night against the Syracuse Crunch, including the game-winner in overtime.

- The Canadiens’ bench boss hasn’t revealed his lineup for Sunday night’s game against the Islanders as of yet. He said that information will come on Monday. That means that Andrighetto doesn’t yet know if he’ll be suiting up for his first NHL game of the season.

- Therrien also provided an update on the health status of forward Torrey Mitchell, indicating that he would not be available for Sunday night’s game and that his injury would be re-evaluated on Monday.

- Meanwhile, defenseman Alexei Emelin hit the ice for the first time on Saturday since sustaining a lower-body injury against the Pittsburgh Penguins on November 11th. The Russian rearguard has missed the last four games. He will not play on Sunday night.

- Carey Price will get the start in goal on Sunday. It will mark his 17th career start against the Islanders. He boasts a 10-3-3 record against them over the course of his career.
