BREAKING: Rafael Harvey-Pinard's Fate Officially Confirmed

Published January 11, 2024 at 5:21 PM

In the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens made a highly anticipated announcement among the team's fans.

Indeed, the organization has officially confirmed that Quebec forward Rafael Harvey-Pinard will rejoin Martin St-Louis's lineup for tonight's game against the San Jose Sharks. Swedish forward Emil Heineman will be left out, having played alongside Sean Monahan and Jesse Ylönen in the last two games.

Wow! What wonderful news for the Montreal attack!

This will be his first game in nearly two months, having been sidelined since the match against the Calgary Flames on November 14. It will be very interesting to see how Martin St-Louis plans to use the 25-year-old forward, as RHP is likely to join the third line.

Certainly, his addition will undoubtedly benefit the Canadiens' offense. Despite a more challenging start to the season (four assists in 13 games), number 49 has proven to be a key element in the Blue-Blanc-Rouge lineup, having accumulated 14 goals and 6 assists in 34 matches in 2022-2023.
