BREAKING: Tanner Pearson's Fate Confirmed

Published January 23, 2024 at 3:08 PM

Given that CH General Manager Kent Hughes placed Mitchell Stephens on waivers yesterday afternoon, many fans were anticipating the return of the 31-year-old forward, Tanner Pearson.

Moreover, in the past few hours, Martin St-Louis has officially confirmed that the left winger will rejoin the Montreal lineup for tonight's game against the Ottawa Senators.

"Tanner Pearson will make a return to the game tonight against the Sens." - Montreal Canadiens

What excellent news for the Tricolore!

The forward will thus play his first game since December 9th, having suffered an injury to his left hand. Remember that the former Vancouver Canuck had missed the entire 2022-2023 campaign due to a similar injury.

We strongly hope that Tanner Pearson will be able to regain his early-season form. He had started the year strongly with a tally of five points in five games. If the player of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge manages to regularly make it onto the scoresheet, he could potentially increase his value on the trade market.

One thing is certain, the returns of Xhekaj and Pearson will undoubtedly be very beneficial for Martin St-Louis's men, who will try to end a streak of two consecutive losses.
