Worrying Announcement From the Canadiens Organization: Five Key Players May Be Facing Injury

Published March 13, 2024 at 3:01 PM

In the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens made a rather worrisome announcement. Indeed, five players were missing from the team's morning practice, potentially troubled by a minor discomfort at the moment.

Indeed, forwards Josh Anderson, Juraj Slafkovsky, and Tanner Pearson, as well as defensemen Mike Matheson and David Savard, did not practice today, instead receiving treatment from the medical staff.

Let's hope it's nothing serious for the five players in question, as the Tricolore's general manager, Kent Hughes, has already used two of his four call-ups (Joshua Roy and Jayden Struble) in anticipation of the end of the 2023-2024 regular season.

In the case of Juraj Slafkovsky, the Slovak forward reassured fans in an interview with Marc Denis yesterday, mentioning that although he had missed several practices recently, he was in full form to play in games.

As for Josh Anderson, Tanner Pearson, Mike Matheson, and David Savard, this is the first time they have missed a practice like this in recent weeks. It's hard to know if their absence is due to an injury sustained during the game against the Blue Jackets, but it will certainly be a situation to monitor ahead of the matchup against the Boston Bruins tomorrow night.
