Today, we were treated to a big surprise at the start of the Montreal Canadiens' practice.

Joel Edmundson practiced with his teammates!

With the trade deadline just a few days away, and hours after Jake McCabe was traded for a first round pick (and more), this is major.

If that was the only news, it would be a simple surprise, but why talk about a big surprise here?


See for yourself:


Edmundson is wearing a regular jersey and may already be receiving contact.

This is a huge progression in his return to play and we love it!

That's not all, there's more!

In a press briefing in the last few minutes, Montreal Canadiens head coach Martin St-Louis had this to say.

"There's a chance Edmundson will play tomorrow, but it's not guaranteed."


He could possibly return to the game tomorrow! It's a big turnaround and we love it!

Edmundson's return to action could change a lot of things for general manager Kent Hughes, with the deadline just a few days away.
