Noon Player Notes in the Draft (Nov 4)
Ahead of the first game of back-to-backs this weekend, the Montreal Canadiens had decided on Friday that their number one goalie will not play in the first half in Winnipeg, opting to give him the night off completely. Price didn't practice on Friday, getting treatment for a minor lower-body injury and the team recalled Charlie Lindgren to backup Al Montoya against the Jets. The second half of the back-to-back will be played in Chicago and we'll probably know around game time tonight, what the team's plan is for their number one. Currently, he's considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
For Dale C., his team is right in the thick of the Mover & Shaker mix again this week and he hasn't had much production from his 1st round draft pick at all. Dale's team goes into the night, 1 point back of the weekly lead and in 4th place overall in the standings, only 3 points back of 1st. A quick recovery would go a long ways here.
