Last minute announcement from the Canadiens regarding three players and it's really not a good sign

There was a lot of action today for the Montreal Canadiens, and not much good news.

First, the organization announced this:

"Forwards Kirby Dach and Sean Monahan and defenseman Chris Wideman are not participating in practice this morning (treatments)."

- Montreal Canadiens



Dach's absence is definitely not good news, and as for Sean Monahan, it's not a good sign, as Renaud Lavoie mentions:

"Sean Monahan is not at practice today. Not a very good sign."

We then got a nebulous update:

"Update on absent players.

Injured, Wideman will not make the trip the rest of the way

Ill, Dach not leaving with club but could go to Philly

Edmundson: daily evaluation since January 26

Monahan: nobody knows anything."

- Luc Gélinas, RDS

There is also good news, as young defenseman Kaiden Guhle will be on the trip for his part.

Back to Monahan, who seems to be a worrying case, see what Renaud Lavoie mentioned this morning:


Friday he skated alone in Toronto, and wasn't able to push properly, Saturday, St-Louis confirmed that Monahan reached a plateau.

It's looking unlikely he will get traded before March 3rd of he can't get on the ice.

More details will follow.
