BROSSARD, Que. - Michael Condon will make his first NHL start for the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night in Ottawa.
Coach Michel Therrien opted to start Carey Price in the net Saturday in Boston, even though Condon is from Needham, Mass.
Condon beat out Dustin Tokarski for the backup job with a string training camp.
The 25 year old was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Princeton University in 2013. He spent last season with Hamilton in the American Hockey League.
Therrien also said that winger Paul Byron, acquired this week on waivers from Calgary, will play at least one game on the weekend.
