CH preparatory schedule: six games, including three in a row against the Leafs

Yes, unfortunately, it’s now truly the off-season in the National Hockey League, with all the big events like the draft and the opening of the free-agent market behind us.

And then there’s the Montreal Canadiens’ development camp.

There’s not much going on in the field hockey world, apart from a few rumours and signings here and there.

In these difficult times for field hockey fans, we can only hope for one thing: the return of field hockey.

It’s been a long time since Montreal fans have seen their team in action, since they didn’t play in the playoffs.

It was still entertaining to watch the playoffs, but it’s not like watching a CH game, even when they’re not performing as well as they have over the past two seasons.

Well, even if it’s going to be a long, hard wait before we see a Montreal Canadiens game again, we now know THE date for field hockey’s return, as the CH recently announced its schedule of preparatory games.

The Tricolore will play a total of six preparatory games starting on September 25.

Canadien field hockey officially returns on September 25.

There will of course be training camp and rookie camp before then, but the Tricolore’s first official game will take place on September 25 at the Bell Centre.

Out of six games, the CH will play three in a row against the Toronto Maple Leafs, including two at home at the Bell Centre.

The Canadiens will play their first four preparatory games at the Bell Centre before heading to Ontario for their final two games.

The final pre-season game will take place in Ottawa on October 7, four days before the official start of the CH’s 2023-2024 season on October 11 against the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

In short, the preseason is still a long way off, but at least we know what it’s going to be like.

By the way, I think six preseason games is a lot, but it’s already better than other years when the CH played seven or even eight preseason games.

These six games will be used to analyze the various players who will be fighting for a place in the NHL with the Habs.

It will be all the more interesting to follow the players’ performances this year, considering the colossal number of players who will have a chance of making the team.

All this remains to be seen.
