Official Montreal Canadiens press release regarding Mike Hoffman

In anticipation of tonight's game against the Minnesota Wild, the Montreal Canadiens organization has issued an official statement confirming changes to Martin St-Louis' roster.

This is bad news for veteran Mike Hoffman

"Martin St-Louis confirms that Rem Pitlick and Jonathan Drouin will replace Michael Pezzetta and Mike Hoffman tonight." - Montreal Canadiens

While some commentators have been speculating that Drouin should go with the Laval Rocket, the Quebecer is back in the CH lineup, and we're really looking forward to seeing how he responds to the call.


As for Mike Hoffman, he will miss his first game of the season, as he quickly moved from the first line to the stands. A frustrating situation for him.

Hoffman, 32, has two points in nine games this season with the Habs (one goal). He earns 4.5 million per season until 2024.

Do you agree with this decision?

Full lines:

Caufield-Suzuki-Dach

Anderson-Dvorak-Gallagher

Drouin-Monahan-Armia

Pitlick-Evans-Slafkovsky

Defensemen:

Guhle-Savard

Xhekaj-Wideman

Harris-Kovacevic

Jake Allen will be the starting goalie. Note that tonight's game will be at 8pm, not 7pm. What is your prediction for the game?
