Over the past few hours, TVA Sports journalist Anthony Martineau has shared some exciting news with Montreal Canadiens fans.

To the surprise of many, defenseman Jordan Harris was officially back on the ice at the CN Sports Complex in Brossard. The CH's number 54 trained for over 45 minutes, seemingly unbothered by the injury he sustained against the St. Louis Blues last Sunday.

What fantastic news!

Let's remember, Harris had to leave the game following a heavy hit by Sammy Blais. Many had speculated that he might have suffered a concussion, suggesting a potentially lengthy absence for the 23-year-old.


"Jordan Harris skated for over 45 minutes this morning. Full gear. He handled the puck and took shots. Seemed generally comfortable. An excellent piece of news, remembering how hard he was hit last Sunday." - Anthony Martineau

It's unclear exactly when he will be able to return to Martin St-Louis's lineup, but all signs point to the Canadiens being able to count on reinforcement in the very near future.

Certainly, Jordan Harris's potential return will force the head coach to make some significant decisions regarding his defensive lineup. It remains to be seen whether Arber Xhekaj or Johnathan Kovacevic will be the ones to make way when Harris is ready to return to game action.
