Samuel Montembeault’s rehabilitation will be completed in two weeks


Everyone knows that the goalkeeping situation at the Montreal Canadiens is VERY nebulous at the moment.

This is in large part due to the fact that we still don’t know if Carey Price will be able to start next season or even just play in the NHL again.

It’s not for nothing that Kent Hughes keeps an eye on several young NHL goalkeepers.

Another factor that also makes the situation in front of the Montreal network somewhat nebulous is the fact that Samuel Montembeault has not yet signed a contract with CH.

Well, if it has anything to do with the Quebecer getting injured, it will soon be a thing of the past.

In fact, number 35 of the Habs should have completed his rehabilitation for his wrist injury in about two weeks if we rely on the information collected by LA Larivière.

During the Champions Classic at Victoriaville Golf Club, Montembeault said for the first time that he no longer needed to wear a brace.

“I saw my doctor (Dr. Robert Hotchkiss) in New York last week and he had nothing but good news. I no longer need to wear the splint. I start training a little more. – Samuel Montembeault

The CH goalkeeper then added that he only had two weeks of rehabilitation left.

“If it were in season, I would start skating again and be back at 100 percent in two weeks with no problems. Two weeks to rehabilitation. – Samuel Montembeault

Montembeault also explained that after the injury, pain bothered him when he was in front of the net.

At the beginning it was really bad, the first few games, but we kept it under control by always putting duct tape and we did a lot of physio. – Samuel Montembeault

In short, it is really good to see that the rehabilitation of the CH goalkeeper is going well and that he will be ready to resume training 100% very soon.

The Quebec goalkeeper also let slip a few words about his contractual situation. Here they are.

“I don’t have a lot of expectations, because I haven’t had a lot of news. The repechage will be in Montreal and my agent will be there. I know he will communicate with Kent at that time and they will meet. “

“It is my wish (to continue playing in Montreal. I really enjoyed Montreal despite everything and if I have the chance to return, it is for sure my number one choice.”

– Samuel Montembeault

Note that the deadline for submitting qualifying bids will fall a few days after the repechage. In fact, NHL teams will have until July 11 to retain the rights of their restricted free agents.
