Major News Confirmed for Colin White and the Montreal Canadiens

Published February 22, 2024 at 5:04 PM

Just after the Canadiens' optional practice, head coach Martin St-Louis told reporters that he would make no changes to his lineup for the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Indeed, the only modification to the lineup concerns the goaltenders, as Cayden Primeau will take Samuel Montembeault's place in the Montreal net.

However, MSL made this statement before Kent Hughes took everyone by surprise by claiming forward Colin White off waivers.

A last-minute change is announced for the Canadiens

Finally, the former first-round pick will officially be inserted into Martin St-Louis's lineup tonight. He will therefore play his first game in the Tricolore uniform, against his former team!

Wow! What an utterly unreal story!

"Colin White will make his debut with the Canadiens tonight in Pittsburgh." - Montreal Canadiens

We love it!

"Colin White was playing for the Penguins.

The CH just claimed him and they are playing against... the Penguins, tonight.

So White will almost literally change locker rooms before the game. It's legendary." - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

Imagine the scenario where Colin White scores a goal to give the CH a win.

It seems that Colin White will take Brandon Gignac's place on the fourth line, who was placed on waivers with the intention of being sent to the Laval Rocket in the American League.

For sure, things are moving with the Tricolore today!
