As we reported yesterday afternoon, the Montreal Canadiens' number 20, Juraj Slafkovsky, did not participate in the team's practice to receive treatment from the medical staff.

While such announcements are rather common the day after a game, some fans were worried about his health status, especially since the Canadiens had a day off on Sunday.

Furthermore, adding to the concerns of Montreal fans, Luc Gélinas mentioned that the Slovak forward was seen limping after Saturday night's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.




However, shortly before being interrupted by the presence of Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield on the 5 à 7 broadcast, the RDS journalist confirmed excellent news regarding their line mate.

Indeed, Luc Gélinas mentioned that the 2022 first-round pick was walking comfortably on Monday, and everything indicates that he will be indeed able to face the Nashville Predators tonight.

What excellent news!

More scare than harm for Juraj Slafkovsky!

This is undoubtedly great news for Martin St-Louis's men, as the forward is possibly playing the best hockey of his career at the moment, having scored 16 points in his last 19 games.

With only two wins in the last ten games, the Canadiens will try to turn things around by accumulating points in a third consecutive game.
