Christian Dvorak to miss the start of the season
Cap Friendly: Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes announced the forward Christian Dvorak won’t be ready to play before November.
If Dvorak and his $4.45 million are able to go on the LTIR, it definitely changes things for the Canadiens.
- Puck Pedia: “They can now start the season with Dvorak on LTIR and be over the cap by close to his $4.45M. They can subsequently put Price on LTIR and add $10.5M of cap space.”
Surgery for Matt Murray and Jake Muzzin won’t play
Elliotte Friedman: Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brad Treliving said that goaltender Matt Murray requires a “significant” surgery and that defenseman Jake Muzzin won’t play this year.
Chris Johnston: Treliving said Murray’s surgery will occur within the next week. They aren’t announcing any details for Murray’s privacy.
Little update on Aaron Ekblad and Brandon Montour
George Richardson: Florida Panthers GM Bill Zito didn’t have much of an update for defensemen Aaron Ekblad and Brandon Montour.
Zito said that both are still targeting a mid-December return. One of the defensemen could be a little early, one could be a little later.
