BREAKING: Josh Anderson's Fate Confirmed

Published January 20, 2024 at 11:48

The return of Josh Anderson to the Montreal Canadiens lineup is indeed a significant boost for the team. After missing four games due to a lower-body injury sustained on January 11 against the San Jose Sharks, Anderson's full participation in practice at the TD Garden is a positive sign.

The Canadiens have officially confirmed that Anderson will replace Jesse Ylonen in the lineup against the Boston Bruins.

"Josh Anderson will rejoin the lineup against Boston. Jesse Ylönen will be left out." - Montreal Canadiens

Anderson's return could be a key factor in revitalizing the Canadiens' offense, which has managed to score only 14 goals in the last six games.

The projected lineup against the Boston Bruins is as follows:

Cole Caufield -- Nick Suzuki -- Juraj Slafkovsky
Josh Anderson -- Jake Evans -- Brendan Gallagher
Joshua Roy -- Sean Monahan -- Joel Armia
Rafael Harvey-Pinard -- Mitchell Stephens -- Michael Pezzetta

Mike Matheson -- David Savard
Jayden Struble -- Kaiden Guhle
Jordan Harris -- Justin Barron

Samuel Montembeault

This lineup, bolstered by Anderson's return, sets up an intriguing matchup with the Bruins, one of the Canadiens' fiercest rivals.
