We were talking about it earlier today, we suspected it was coming, and here's the confirmation.

Lucas Condotta assigned / Alex Newhook back for the Habs

See the official announcement from the Montreal Canadiens.

"The Canadiens have assigned forward Lucas Condotta to the Laval Rocket." - Montreal Canadiens



This therefore confirms Alex Newhook's return to play! We love it!

"Lucas Condotta has been assigned to the Laval Rocket.

With the aim of reintegrating Alex Newhook into the lineup for Saturday's game against the Stars." - Patrick Friolet, RDS

It will be a solid reinforcement for Martin St-Louis' team (with Newhook), but also a reinforcement surely appreciated by the Laval Rocket.

Newhook, 23 years old, has accumulated 13 points in 23 games this season, including seven goals.

Condotta, 26 years old, has accumulated 44 points in his last two seasons with the Laval Rocket as well as 1 goal in 4 NHL games.

Details to follow.



Newhook was back at practice and practiced on the first PP:
