Michael Bournival suffered a concussion in early February. He has been skating alongside his teammates for a little over a week. He has yet to be cleared  but he will be reevaluated by team doctors on Monday afternoon in Brossard.

Carey Price who suffered a lower body injury during the Olympics did not skate for eight days straight. However on the teams California road trip he did start to skate. He has only been doing 20-30 minute sessions at a time. Coach Michel Therrien said in an interview this morning, «Price made progress, but it is too early to say if he will return to training on Monday or Tuesday.»

Brandon Prust who is suffering from an upper-body injury showed up to practice early Saturday morning supporting a red/contact jersey. It is said he will be ready to play but the team will keep him sidelined a bit longer (probably until Wednesday).

As for Josh Gorges who returned to Montreal early (from a fractured hand), there is no update on how bad the fracture is or how long he will be out for. The updates are expected when the practices start up again in Brossard.

As for Dale Weise who suffered a scary cut a few nights ago that required over a dozen stitches… He is scratched again tonight for the second game in a row. There are speculations that it is to heal the stitches and wont reopen if he gets checked or caught in a scrum
