Breaking: Kent Hughes makes an emergency roster move to strengthen the Canadiens lineup

In the last few seconds, the Montreal Canadiens organization announced this.

'The Canadiens have recalled forward Emil Heineman from the Laval Rocket (emergency recall). He will join the team Friday afternoon.' - Montreal Canadiens

Therefore, it is an emergency recall for Heineman, and Kent Hughes thus adds reinforcements to Martin St-Louis' lineup.

With the injury suffered by Christian Dvorak, it was to be expected, but it also seems to confirm that we will have to wait longer before seeing Rafaël Harvey-Pinard and/or Tanner Pearson in uniform again.


Heineman, 22 years old, is a 6-foot-tall, 202-pound forward drafted 43rd overall (2nd round) in 2020 by the Florida Panthers.

He has accumulated 6 points in 10 AHL games this season, and no points in two games with the Habs.
