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.

In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.

In a July 29 Instagram post, Danault thanked Canadiens CEO Geoff Molson and general manager Marc Bergevin, as well as his wife and son. He also thanks Habs fans for their "energy and passion."
"My teammates [have] been unreal to me [the] last five years, we've been through everything and could not wish for a better group," he wrote, thanking his teammates for the memories they've created during his time on the Canadiens, including their historic Stanley Cup final run.
It's not the first time Danault has played for another NHL team. In 2011, Danault was drafted as the 26th pick for the Chicago Blackhawks before being traded to the Canadiens in 2016.
