In a surprising turn of events, Emil Heineman will be joining the Montreal Canadiens' starting lineup, contrary to popular belief!

Solid reinforcement for Martin St-Louis!

At least, everything points in that direction:

«Michael Pezzetta is practicing with the reserves this morning (Harris and Lindstrom)


So, everything indicates that Emil Heineman will play his first NHL game tonight.

To be confirmed with Martin St-Louis at 14:00.»

We will therefore give you the final confirmation at 2 pm, but several sources suggest that it would be official. Heineman will play his first game with the Canadiens:



Remember that the young Heineman, acquired from the Calgary Flames in the Tyler Toffoli trade, had a superb camp last fall.

With the Laval Rocket, he has 13 points (8 goals) in 18 games. He is 22 years old and he is a 43rd overall pick (2nd round) in 2020.

We can't wait to see him in action.
