In the last few seconds, the Montreal Canadiens organization has released its first trios and duos for the very first game of the regular season!

Check out the results:

Caufield-Suzuki-Anderson

Monahan-Dach-Hoffman


Slafkovsky-Dvorak-Gallagher

Pitlick-Evans-Dadonov

Defenders:

Guhle-Savard

Xhekaj-Wideman

Harris-Kovacevic

It's done! We have our first lineup for the first game of the regular season!

We notice several things:

- Notably, Jonathan Drouin and Michael Pezzetta will indeed be left out.

- Michael Matheson (injury) will not be in uniform.

- The verdict for young Juraj Slafkovsky has been awaited for months. His position is now known. He will play the first game of the season with the CH on a line with Christian Dvorak and Brendan Gallagher.

- The verdict is also in for the young Kaiden Guhle and Arber Xhekaj.

Guhle will start on the first pair of defensemen with David Savard, while Xhekaj will start on the second pair with Chris Wideman.

It will be very interesting to watch tonight at 7:00 p.m. against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.

Go Habs Go!
