Everything indicates that quality reinforcements will land in the lineup of the Montreal Canadiens as early as tomorrow against the Carolina Hurricanes.

«Since the beginning of the Habs' practice in Raleigh, Jordan Harris has been paired with Jayden Struble. Very possible return tomorrow night against the Hurricanes..to be followed

And Emil Heineman has technically not been sent to Laval.»

Interesting! Does this mean that Justin Barron or Johnatan Kovacevic will be removed from the lineup tomorrow? It seems likely, but let's wait and see.

In any case, it means that General Manager Kent Hughes will have to make a decision and send a player back to Laval.

Stay tuned for tomorrow, at 2 PM (in case of waivers), but know that it could also be a simple reassignment of a young player to the American League.

Details to follow.

Harris, 23 years old, has accumulated 3 points in 16 games this season with the Canadiens, and he had gathered 17 points in 65 games last season.
