Skating in Brossard: Christian Dvorak’s knee holds up well

In recent months, Christian Dvorak underwent knee surgery. As a result, the Canadiens’ center was unable to complete the 2022-2023 season with the others.

That said, a lot of guys didn’t finish the season on time.

All of which is to say that, even though his operation is getting old, it’s clear that the American may not start the season on time. Nothing is certain (and it will depend on his upcoming visit to the doctor), but it’s possible.

We’re likely to see him before Chris Wideman, though.

All this to say that this morning, images of several CH players surfaced, notably via Priyanta Emrith. Of the lot, we see Dvorak skating in Brossard, and what we can conclude is that in a light session, his knee is holding up.

A good first step, don’t you think? We can’t say whether he’ll be ready for the start of the campaign, but we can see that he’s making progress.

We know a lot of the players have come to town and the guys are skating together. They can’t do it with the coaches before camp, but the Brossard complex is open to them. Just like in summer, in fact.

The players skate in small groups to avoid a collision – as happened last year between Joel Edmundson and the captain during a training session.

You can see that this morning in Brossard, guys like Nick Suzuki, Kirby Dach, Cole Caufield, Alex Newhook, Jake Allen and Dvorak, to name but a few, were present.

Paul Byron was also present. He looks like a guest coach.

Once the camp has started, the coaches will decide on the composition of the small groups. But right now, it’s informal and has to be based on who’s present.

It smells more and more like field hockey.

In brief

– Enjoy.

– Clearly, Toronto loves its national team coaches.

– At least he understood.

– Still.
