Forwards Paul Byron, Mike Hoffman, Joel Teasdale, defenseman Josh Brook, and goaltender Carey Price all failed their medicals and are probably out until the start of the regular season.
Defenceman Joel Edmundson is listed with a day-to-day injury and might rejoin the team in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Habs forward Brendan Gallagher was absent for "family reasons" and will return to camp soon.
There's a palpable sense of excitement going into the new season. With a re-tooled team, a bunch of new players, and a new plan of action from head coach Dominique Ducharme, the Habs are looking fresh and capable.
Whether or not they'll make the Stanely Cup Finals again this season is highly debatable, but you best believe the boys will give it their best shot.
On October 1, Amazon Prime is coming out with its latest All Or Nothing sports documentary series which will chronicle the 2020-2021 Toronto Maple Leafs season.
And while that's all fine and dandy for the Maple Leafs, some hockey fans have absolutely roasted the Leafs about their new documentary because they've rightfully pointed out that the Leafs end up with, well, nothing.
The memory of the Canadiens' glorious win against their arch-rivals is still fresh in the minds of Habs supporters in Canada and, like some fans have pointed out, it's kind of silly that the Leafs are touting this documentary series when we all know how it ends already.

It's been almost a week since the Carolina Hurricanes tendered an offer sheet to Montreal Canadiens centre Jesperi Kotkaniemi and there's a good chance that the Habs could lose their star player over a petty beef that goes back two years.
But how did we get here and why is this happening?
We've tendered an Offer Sheet to Jesperi Kotkaniemi 👀 https://t.co/4Mmw3n4DVr
This petty move can be traced back to July 1, 2019, when Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin tendered an offer sheet to Carolina's star centre, Sebastian Aho.
At the time, Bergevin severely underestimated his counterparts in Carolina, Tom Dundon and Don Waddell. They promptly matched Aho's offer sheet — which is now looking like it's a big discount for a player of his talents.
Bergevin also seemingly underestimated his colleague's capacity for revenge. On August 28, 2021, the Hurricanes pulled out a $6,100,015 offer sheet for the Canadiens star player, with a $20 signing bonus.
While the Price family is pretty busy during the field hockey season, it seems that summer is their time to go camping. After an incident last year with their renovated RV, Carey Price and his family have a new Airstream, a brand of RVs famous for their retro look.
This Sunday, August 15, Angela Price, the businesswoman and blogger, shared a video on her Instagram page that shows the interior of the 30-foot trailer, and it's a glamping enthusiast's dream.
Dubbed the "Silver Fox" by the family, this Airstream features a bedroom with a queen bed on one end and a double bed on the other.
"Definitely bigger than we wanted, but with three kids, we had to spring for the bunk option!" wrote Angela Price on her blog.
In the images, we can also see that the trailer has a fully equipped bathroom with a shower, a dinette, a kitchenette and a sofa.
According to the company's website, this model starts at US$109,300. However, no details were released by Carey Price's wife to confirm the price paid for the Silver Fox.
Angela says that she had been dreaming of owning one for several years and her husband had given her a miniature model of the Airstream last summer as a promise to get one in the future. Well, looks like that dream became a reality!
