Jonathan Drouin will do tonight in Ottawa, against the Senators, what he hasn’t done since November 12: he will play in an NHL game.
Drouin has missed the last 13 games with an upper body injury. He will be used in the center of the fourth line, between Michael Pezzetta and Joel Armia. Rem Pitlick will be left out.
Cole Caufield will be in his role as expected, even though he didn’t finish the last game against the Flames due to a hard check from Trevor Lewis.
Samuel Montembeault will be in net for the Canadiens.
