Another step in the right direction for Paul Byron

Published November 23, 2021 at 11:03

Before the Montreal Canadiens jumped on the ice at the Bell Sports Complex at 10:30 a.m., Paul Byron skated solo, then this one looked very comfortable. When he's back with the team, it'll provide another dose of leadership, which won't go amiss.

That said, everyone was at the morning practice, including Joel Edmundson, the unlettered captain of the ship, still wearing a no-contact jersey. Yes, Brett Kulak was there too, he missed yesterday's session due to a day of treatments.

Cedric Paquette was wearing a regular jersey, which shows that the Quebecer is ready to return to the game.

During this practice, Dominique Ducharme sharpened up the special units to maximize a facet that has been missing so far. On the first massive attack, Drouin, Toffoli, Suzuki, Gallagher and Wideman, which shows that the defenseman is THE PP specialist at the moment.

In the case of Jeff Petry, he was on the 3rd wave... he's been getting so much out of it since the opening of the campaign.

Otherwise, no other obvious changes were noted! Paquette was alternating on the 4, but it would be surprising if he was in uniform tomorrow!
