Major change to the Montreal Canadiens' lineup

Published December 19, 2022 at 9:39 PM

Starting at 10:00 p.m., live from Arizona and on RDS, the Montreal Canadiens have a date with the Coyotes.

For the occasion, Martin St-Louis has made some changes to his lineup, including one more major one:





The young Anthony Richard will have the opportunity to play his very first career game with the Habs. He will be on the fourth line of his team.

Richard has been sensational this season with the Laval Rocket, racking up 31 points in just 27 games, including 18 goals. He has been one of the best players in the entire American Hockey League so far this season and it will be interesting to see what he can bring to the Tricolore.

Richard, 25, is a former Val d'Or Foreurs and a former 100th overall pick of the Nashville Preds in 2015.

Do you like these new trios? We also notice that Kirby Dach is back at center on the second trio, while Josh Anderson is on the first trio, along with the excellent Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

Good game!
