The Canadiens 2004 Prospect Tournament kicks off tomorrow, with the Habs taking on the Ottawa Senators at 7:30 PM EST at Sportplexe 4 Glaces Pierrefonds. This game marks the first of 4 in as many nights; others are played Sunday vs Florida, and Monday vs Toronto. On Friday, Hamilton head coach (and the team’s coach of this team) announced his lineup and line combinations for the Ottawa game, and some other notes for the games to come. They are as follows:
Cory Urquhart and Gregory Stewart will sit this one out with injuries.
On the defensive side of things, Jarvis did not announce the pairings, but stated who’s playing and who isn’t. Jonathan Jolette will be the single rearguard watching from the sidelines. Andrew Archer, Francois Caron, Alex Dulac-Lemelin, Mark Flood, Derick Martin, and James Sanford will suit up for this one.
Between the pipes will be no other than probable Hamilton starter Yann Danis. Jaroslav Halak will start Game 2 on Sunday, while 2004 draft pick Loic Lacasse gets the nod in Game 3 on Monday.
