Martin St-Louis has officially made his choice for Paul Byron's replacement

As you know, during the Canadian's most recent game, two other players had to leave the game: Paul Byron and Josh Anderson.

In the case of Anderson, more fear than harm, he was already back at practice yesterday morning.

On the other hand, in the case of Paul Byron, he will miss time (again - upper body).

With Byron's injury against the Buffalo Sabres, Montreal Canadiens interim head coach Martin St-Louis had to make a decision to replace him.

Absent since January 14, it is finally Mathieu Perreault who is back and who will take his place in the Habs lineup.

Also, seven defensemen will take part in the warm-up period tonight and St. Louis will make a decision afterwards on whether Clague or Schueneman will be the sixth defenseman.
