As we told you in the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens have revealed their official lineup for tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It wasn't supposed to be this way, but young Juraj Slafkovsky was finally inserted into the lineup at the last second.

We just found out why:

"Juraj Slafkovsky was not supposed to play tonight but Jonathan Drouin is bothered by a virus and is at home." - Renaud Lavoie



So the Habs' first overall pick in 2022 will line up on his team's top three, alongside Rem Pitlick and Joel Armia.

We can't wait to see him in action again!

Let's hope Drouin can get better soon, we need him 100% and in top shape.

As for today's game, puck drop is scheduled for 7pm ET this Wednesday.

You can follow all the action on RDS and SN1, or on 98.5 fm and TSN 690.
