CH development camp: notable absentees

CH development camp: notable absentees


The Montreal Canadiens confirmed on Monday that some of their high-profile prospects, including defensemen Kaiden Guhle and Logan Mailloux, will be unable to take part in the on-ice sessions at their development camp this week in Brossard .

Guhle is recovering from a lower-body injury, while Mailloux is still recovering from shoulder surgery he underwent in the spring. The two men are however present at the scene of the camp which began on Monday with exercises off the ice. In addition, Arber Xhekaj (upper body) and Nick Rhéaume (shoulder) also had to give up.

The number of hockey players who will be on skates but who will miss intra-squad games is guard Justin Barron (ankle), wing Israel Mianscum (hamstring) and center Jack Smith (shoulder).

Defender Jayden Struble joined the long list on Monday. Unlike the other absent players, the full-back was expected to fully participate in the camp, but the CH confirmed that he had suffered a lower body injury during the day, thus preventing him from continuing.

The camp will conclude on Wednesday.
