Rafael Harvey-Pinard reveals the setback he went through this week

Published March 29, 2024 at 4:35 PM

In the last few minutes, Montreal Canadiens forward Rafaël Harvey-Pinard revealed experiencing a wild return to Montreal after the season's longest trip.

He encountered quite an adventure as the team was coming back from Colorado. Here's what journalist Anthony Martineau reported about the Quebecer:

RHP just told me that his return from the trip didn't go as planned.

As the team's plane was landing in Montreal, he noticed that one of his car's tires appeared to be flat.

Upon inspection, two nails were lodged in said wheel.

By the time I got everything sorted out, I finally arrived home two hours after everyone else. Let's just say I was happy to be home!"

However, none of this could remove the perpetual smile from the face of number 49, who recounted all this while laughing. - via Anthony Martineau

Obviously, these are things that can happen to anyone, but the fact that it occurred after a long two-week trip abroad, just when he probably wanted to be home the most, makes this situation...

Quite a funny anecdote indeed.
