Samuel Montembault's Fate Confirmed ahead of tomorrow's game

Published January 5, 2024 at 1:15 PM

At a press conference in the last few seconds, the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens, Martin St-Louis, confirmed the news we were waiting for.

It's Samuel Montembeault who will be in goal tomorrow against the New York Rangers.

«The Club announced Friday morning that it has recalled forward Emil Heineman from the Rocket, in the American League. The 22-year-old winger will join the team later in the day.

During his press conference, head coach Martin St-Louis indicated that Samuel Montembeault will be in goal for the Canadiens on Saturday.

The Canadiens will host the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre, Saturday at 7 p.m. ET.» - Montreal Canadiens

There you have it!

So it's bad news for young goaltender Cayden Primeau, who has to miss his turn again, but Samuel definitely deserves to play more often than just once every three games.

It promises to be exciting tomorrow! Details will follow.
