There are several hundred people evidently playing hooky on Montreal’s south shore today to see the fourth day of scrimmages at Habs camp, and the loudest cheer before today's intra-squad game was for a certain Mr. Subban.
Yes, P.K. is in the building, and he’s wearing hockey equipment.
Not only that, he’s been splitting time with his old minor league defensive partner Alex Henry, but also with 2011 first-rounder Nathan Beaulieu.
The two of them even combined on a goal scored by the latter.
Beaulieu is still a ways away from the NHL, but he looks awfully good on Subban’s left.
Gabriel Dumont, a former 50-goal scorer in junior, scored a hat trick for Subban’s victorious white team; non-roster invitee Ben Winnett, a former University of Michigan Wolverine, replied for the reds - it was his third goal of camp.
First cuts will come today in anticipation of Montreal’s pre-season kickoff on Tuesday against Dallas.
