Five new CH players are part of the protocol

The Christmas break did not have the desired effect on the Canadiens. A week after their last laps of the ice in Brossard, five players from the team were added to the COVID-19 protocol list.

So Jake Allen, Ben Chiarot, Jeff Petry, Chris Wideman and Joel Edmundson joined Mike Hoffman, Laurent Dauphin, Artturi Lehkonen and Tyler Toffoli (added in the last few hours).

Eric Raymond, the goalkeeper coach, is also among those whose name has been added to this cursed list.

Cayden Primeau and Corey Schueneman of the Laval Rocket have been recalled.

In addition, Brandon Baddock, Cameron Hillis, Gianni Fairbrother and Michael McNiven will be part of the reserve squad of the Habs. Recall that on Sunday evening, the NHL reinstated this clause in order to fight against the explosion of cases of COVID-19.

This rule will remain in place until the All-Star break, which is at the beginning of February.

Few soldiers

It is therefore with a fairly decimated formation that the Habs headed for Florida to face the Lightning there on Tuesday night. Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield, Brendan Gallagher, Jake Evans, Alexander Romanov and Brett Kulak are the only skaters in the Montreal camp who have made the Stanley Cup final.

The Canadian has not played since his 3-2 shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 16. His next four duels have been postponed. After the meeting in Tampa, he is due to visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday and the Florida Panthers on Saturday afternoon.

On the Lightning side, Anthony Cirelli and Andrej Sustr have been added to the list. They join the club’s first two goalkeepers, Andrei Vasilevskiy and Brian Elliott, as well as Mikhail Sergachev and Pierre-Édouard Bellemare. Head coach Jon Cooper and his assistant Rob Zettler are also affected.
