Today the Montréal Canadiens announced their roster of players who will come to Toronto to face the Maple Leafs and the Senators rookies.

They, like the Senators, are missing their most recent first round pick. Both those teams picked US players who are not available. The Leafs Timothy Liljegren will be on hand along with Carl Grundström and Eemeli Räsänen. None of the Leafs US-based or Russian-based prospects are available, however.

Of the six try-outs on the roster, Maxime Fortier stands out. He scored at just under a point per game pace in the Q, yet went undrafted. He is going back for another year there, but it’s good to see some NHL club show an interest in him.
