Status quo for the bold Dominique Ducharme at practice this morning

Published November 29, 2021 at 12:43

Dominique Ducharme ended the Drouin, Suzuki and Caufield experiment this Saturday after a short sample. The Habs head coach decided to plop the ever-working Artturi Lehkonen back in alongside the two youngsters.

A little "grit" didn't hurt on this trio against the Penguins.

Drouin, meanwhile, is still alongside Jake Evans and Brendan Gallagher.

Unfortunately, Joel Edmundson was not at practice, which may lead us to believe that he has taken a step back in his return to the game.

Also, Dom Ducharme used his boldness this morning by putting the two young offensive defensemen together again, Sami Niku and Mattias Norlinder. We shouldn't expect them to play many minutes tonight.
