In the last few minutes, two pleasant surprises have been confirmed live from Brossard, during the Montreal Canadiens' practice session.

On one hand, we witnessed the return to the ice of Rafaël Harvey-Pinard, who skated alone. This is a significant first step towards his comeback.

Surprise!

Rafaël Harvey-Pinard is on ice B this morning.


And he seems very comfortable. - Anthony Martineau, TVA Sports



Also, we learned that Jayden Struble is participating in the practice. This is excellent news considering he suffered a worrying injury last Thursday, on his own, without any contact.

Rafaël Harvey-Pinard skated away from the rest of the group, on the secondary rink.

Note that Jayden Struble is participating in the training session. He also laced up his skates yesterday, as part of the skills contest. - Patrick Friolet, RDS

He should potentially make a return to the lineup during the three games this week.
