Charles Hudon was able to put in evidence, although he believes to have offered a better performance during the first week of camp.
The attacker Charles Hudon and defenceman Victor Mete have achieved their goal of carving out a place in the training of 23 players for the Montreal canadiens for the first game of the season against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
The confirmation came in the late afternoon on Tuesday, when were revealed the lists of the 31 configurations of the circuit.
Transferred to the left wing to veteran centre Tomas Plekanec and right wing Artturi Lehkonen, Hudon was able to highlight, although it is thought to have offered a better performance during the first week of camp.
As for Mete, it has been nothing less than the revelation of the training camp. The young defender ontario, which in principle was supposed to start a fourth season with the Knights of London, has opened the eyes of the observers by displaying a cold-blooded surprising while skirting the veteran Shea Weber on a regular basis.
On Saturday against the Ottawa Senators, he closed the calendar preparatory with a harvest of two points, including his first goal of the camp. Remains to know now if head coach Claude Julien will continue to use it with Weber, or if it will re-shuffle his tandems on the defensive.
The direction of the Canadian has submitted a training that brings together 13 forwards, including Jacob De La Rose and the veteran Torrey Mitchell. It also has eight defenders, including veteran Mark Streit, who makes a return to Montreal after an absence of ten years, and Joe Morrow, who played under the orders of Julian for a little more than two seasons and a half in Boston.
Weber, Jeff Petry, Jordie Benn, Brandon Davidson and newcomer Karl Alzner complement the brigade defensive. In addition, the Canadian has placed the name of the defender David Schlemko on the injured list because of an injury to a hand-now old of three weeks, and that is slow to heal.
Not surprisingly, the two goalies are Carey Price and Al Montoya.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Canadian announced that for the attackers, Andreas Martinsen and Byron Froese had been assigned, the Rocket of Laval, in the american League. The names of the two players had been submitted to the runoff Monday and they have not been claimed.
