The Canadian development camp opened yesterday in Brossard, with the traditional physical exams me medical.
Although the boys weren’t supposed to hit the ice until 12:15 today, several of them informally skated in the morning. We also got to see Juraj Slafkovsky in his new colors (and #60). Together with Marie-Philip Poulin, consultant for new developments, too!

We will monitor what Slafkovsky will be able to offer as hockey this afternoon… but we’ll also be keeping an eye on Sean Farrell, Joshua Roy, Filip Mesar, Justin Barron, Owen Beck, Lane Hutson, Oliver Kapanen, Emil Heineman, Ty Smilanic, Jayden Struble, Frederik Dichow and Jakub Dobes, some of the more interesting names among all the players present in Brossard.
Unfortunately, Kaiden Guhle (lower body), Arber Xhekaj (upper body) and Logan Mailloux (shoulder) are injured and will not participate in the ice activities scheduled for this week.
Note of #habs Development Camp: Logan Mailloux, Kaiden Guhle and Arber Xhekaj are rehabbing injuries, so they won’t be on the ice today.

We are talking here about three great absences in the blue line. Mailloux- who skated alone around 11:40 a.m. – I’m still missing some good hockey. Will he be able to make up for all the delays he has accumulated in the last two or three years?
Note that Justin Barron is still recovering from an ankle injury
Why is Jordan Harris not present? He only has a few weeks of experience with the pros…
Officially, Harris, like Jesse Ylonen, Mattias Norlinder, was drafted more than four years ago. Harris is a third-round pick in 2018. Therefore, he participated in the 2018 and 2019 editions. There were no summer camps in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19.
To stay that Harris, unlike Ylonen and Norlinder, still considers himself an early-career prospect. The four years he spent in northwestern university distort the data.
For those wondering why players like Jordan Harris, Mattias Norlinder, Jesse Ylönen, etc… are not in #habs Development Camp, the event is for prospects just beginning their professional careers. Nutrition, physical preparation and sensitivity courses are taught.

But hey, the rules of the collective agreement are the rules! Harris had the right to say no and said no or has not been invited at all. Who knows…
To clarify, CBA states that players DO NOT have to attend more than 3 development camps. But since it’s a new group in charge, I’m a bit surprised #habs Harris is not there. Lavoie explained why for Mysak. And Norlinder I guess still recovering from injuries. https://t.co/9XI8BkzQRn pic.twitter.com/SFvvxbm2tt

Only two players born before Harris are at Brossard this week: Lucas Condotta (new to the organization) and Owen Savory (wild).
Please note that Sheldon Kennedy should speak to the CH’s hopes a little later today. He will try to make them aware of the various dangers that await them in professionals. He will speak in particular about respect and consent together with Bruno Gervais. Damn, she wishes she could see Logan Mailloux’s face during this conference…
Sheldon Kennedy is here today at the Canadiens development camp, training prospects on respect and consent.

– Matt Murray would approach Toronto (and Edmonton’s Jack Campbell?). Everything will depend on Murray’s health in the end.
I am told that there are some solid frame elements between the @Senators Y @Maple Leafs however, the potential completion of this agreement is highly dependent on TML’s extensive and up-to-date medical due diligence on Matt Murray’s health. @espn @NHL #HockeyTwitter

– Small contract purchase planned in Chicago.
waiting for news that #blackhawks will buy 24 year old F Henrik Borgstrom (in the last year of 1M cap hit with 1.1M Salary).
Purchase Limit Scope:
Year 1 83K
Year 2 183K
It would have had no impact on the cap if it had been sent to minors. Save 733K in cash https://t.co/hadESyo5F5 pic.twitter.com/Gh1yF1gZcJ
