- Michael Russo: It appears that Eriksson Ek is ahead of schedule. He’s skating and could return on Friday.
Montreal Canadiens: Coach Dominique Ducharme said that forwards Josh Anderson, Joel Armia, Christian Dvorak and Mike Hoffman are all listed as day-to-day with injuries. Their status for their game on Wednesday is not unknown at this time.
Montreal Canadiens: Coach Ducharme on Carey Price:
“No one had indicated to me that Carey will not play this season, so, like we discussed from the start, he has a number of steps to go through. Of course, with the time that we missed here, unable to even access the facility, it’s therapy and training time that he and other players lost.”
- Eric Engels: Ducharme said that Price’s meeting with the surgeon in New York was delayed and then canceled.
- It still needs to happen. It’s not just a one-on-one meeting and because of the protocols, it hasn’t been able to happen yet.
- The last time Price was on the ice was mid-December.
