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.
"We are very excited to have been chosen by the League to host the draft, which will take place in Montreal for the first time since 2009," France Margaret Bélanger, president, Sports and Entertainment of Groupe CH, said in a press release.
It’s official, the 2022 NHL Draft will take place in Montreal on July 7 and 8!
