After a day of medicals and physical testing, 41 players hit the ice at Brossard Saturday for the official start of Montreal Canadiens’ rookie camp.
The players will go through their paces through until Tuesday. Full camp begins Thursday. The veterans will gather at Laval-sur-le-lac Monday for the annual golf tournament.
A number of players will grab their fare share of attention at rookie camp, including number 34, Michael McCarron, the team’s first-round draft pick in 2013. McCarron is coming off a hot-and-cold season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.
Number 26, Jiri Sekac, was signed out of the Czech Republic as a free agent in January. He already has some substantial hockey mileage under his belt, having played with Prague of the KHL last season.
Catch McCarron and Sekac in action here from Saturday’s on-ice session, along with number 56, Tom Bozon, and 75, Charles Hudon.
