We now know why Logan Mailloux is absent and the CH is making a decision on this issue

As the Montreal Canadiens rookies took on the Buffalo Sabres rookies yesterday, it really feels like the season is just around the corner and it's really fun. The excitement is there!

In particular, we had the opportunity to see many of the organization's promising young players in action, such as Juraj Slafkovsky, Jordan Harris, Filip Mesar, Riley Kidney, Owen Beck, Emil Heineman, and many others.

There were also some notable absentees, such as backs Kaiden Guhle and Logan Mailloux.

TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie has provided an interesting and encouraging update on this subject, including the reason for Mailloux's absence.

Contrary to some information that was circulating, and contrary to what many believed, "Mailloux is feeling much better but the Canadiens don't want to take any chances, as he is recovering from a shoulder injury," as reported by Renaud Lavoie.

The news is therefore encouraging in his case, and he will be back to play in the juniors in the next few weeks, but the CH preferred to be cautious.

"Logan Mailloux is feeling much better, but the Canadiens don't want to take any chances as he recovers from a shoulder injury. He will return to action at the junior level in the next few weeks."

So the CH has made a decision in his case, and Mailloux will not play a game at this rookie tournament, and he will also be noticeably absent from the Montreal Canadiens training camp.

It's a shame, because we're really looking forward to seeing him in action, especially since the feedback has been so positive:

But we can understand the organization being careful with this young talent.

The only reason he is not playing right now is because the CH organization does not want to take a chance on him.

No, it's not related to the fact that he's still not under contract, and it's not related to a possible complication in the rehabilitation of his major shoulder injury. So that's good news, in the end.

As for Guhle, he should be in uniform this Sunday!
