Incredible News for Kirby Dach: Canadiens Fans Should Be Very Exciting

Published February 14, 2024 at 12:37

In the last few minutes, we've just witnessed an absolutely exceptional scene live from the CN Sports Complex in Brossard. Indeed, the Canadiens' forward, Kirby Dach, was officially back on the ice.

Wow! What wonderful news for the fans of the Montreal Canadiens!

After Alex Newhook, now it's Kirby Dach's turn to return to the ice, and that well ahead of the initial timeline that had been announced by the team's medical staff.

See the images in question right here:

Let's remember that the 23-year-old center had suffered a serious injury to his right knee during the second game of the season. The organization had also confirmed that the forward would be sidelined for the entire year due to tears in the anterior and medial cruciate ligaments of the knee.

However, nearly two months before the end of the regular schedule, Kirby Dach is already back on the ice. Could he rejoin Martin St-Louis' lineup by the end of the 2023-2024 campaign?

"Kirby Dach skated alone this morning in a nice sportswear outfit. A short session but still." - Alexandre Gascon

More details will follow over the next few days, but there is no doubt that it's great news to see him lacing up the skates again.

Destined to play a major role in the team's rebuilding process, Kirby Dach is poised for a very promising future with the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge. Moreover, he has accumulated an impressive total of 14 goals and 26 assists (40 points) in 60 games since his arrival with the Montreal Canadiens last year.

With the rapid progression of the first line, number 77 could bring interesting stability to the Montreal top-6. For sure, we are very happy to see that his rehabilitation is going well, and we are very much looking forward to seeing him in the CH lineup in the near future.
