Canadiens Insider Confirms Rumours Surrounding Cole Caufield's Health

Published February 23, 2024 at 9:19

Over the last few days, a recurring topic concerning the Montreal Canadiens has undoubtedly been the health status of Cole Caufield. It's worth noting that following the game against the Washington Capitals last Saturday, the diminutive forward missed three consecutive practices. Although CH's number 22 indicated that he was 100%, his absence raised several questions and, more importantly, some concerns.

Many journalists covering the Canadiens have speculated that Cole Caufield is currently suffering from an injury, implying that he might not truly be at his best.

Renaud Lavoie Provides an Update on Cole Caufield's Situation

According to the journalist, the rumor is indeed true!

During his appearance on TVA Sports, Renaud Lavoie confirmed that Cole Caufield sustained an injury in last week's game against the New York Rangers, which he apparently aggravated on Saturday against Alexander Ovechkin and his teammates.

Indeed, the 22-year-old felt discomfort in his lower body due to a contact with Jacob Trouba in the final moments of the game, grimacing as he returned to the bench. He then worsened this minor injury in the following game, leading him to miss this week's team practices.

Fortunately, Cole Caufield avoided the worst, as he participated in the Canadiens' two games on Wednesday and Thursday. However, it's still concerning to know that he's currently troubled by a minor issue, especially since the remaining games don't really have any significance for the organization.

Let's hope he can finish the season without any complications, as he will play a major role in Martin St-Louis's lineup in 2024-2025.
