The Montreal Canadiens are currently on the ice for their practice today, and head coach Martin St-Louis has made an interesting decision.

It has to do with the special units. Check out the power play, as reported by Eric Engels:

PP1: Caufield, Suzuki, Wideman, Monahan and Anderson.

PP2: Hoffman, Dadonov, Gallagher, Dach and Dvorak.


Some surprises and notable facts here. The absence of Juraj Slafkovsky on the power play, the absence of Jonathan Drouin, and most importantly, the fact that there are no defensemen on the second unit.

In fact, the "defenseman" on the second power play is Mike Hoffman. Interesting... A daring decision!

Another intriguing decision.

After being an "extra" yesterday, here is that Jonathan Drouin found himself, this morning, on his team's PK, possibly even to simply "fill a jersey", a particular and unexpected position for him.

This is clearly not the scenario Jonathan was hoping for, but it will be interesting to see him work his way out of this situation. The potential is still there.
