Starting September 9th, and running through the 14th, the Montreal Canadiens will be hosting and taking part in a 4 team rookie tournament.  The other teams participating will be the Ottawa Senators, Florida Panthers, and for the 1st time ever, the Toronto Maple Leafs.  All games and practices will be held in the Sportplexe 4 Glaces, in Pierrefonds, QC, which also hosted the Canadiens Development Camp in early July.


24 players have been named to the Canadiens roster, 17 of which are actual prospects, while 7 tryout players have also been added to fill out the roster.
