There are still some big games to play for the Tricolore's training club in order to qualify for the big dance this spring.
Jean-François Houle's men are only one point behind the Rochester Americans and fourth place in the North Division, the last playoff spot.
Of course, the catastrophic injury situation in the big club has affected the Rocket's lineup, which has been stripped of several important players, including Alex Belzile, Rafael Harvey-Pinard, Jesse Ylonen, Anthony Richard and we could even add Justin Barron.
However, a big announcement could come very soon, adding reinforcements from Sweden in the next few days.
As reported by Marco Normandin of Habsolumentfan.com, forward Emil Heineman's season, obtained in the deal that sent Tyler Toffoli to Calgary last year, is over in his native country, as his team, Leksand IF, has been eliminated from the Swedish Elite League.
In connection with this elimination, according to journalist Patrik Bexell, who is the Canadiens' European correspondent for Eyes on the Prize, it is more than likely that the young forward will be brought in to finish the season with the Rocket in the coming days.
Now that the latter is free from his Swedish team, he who still had one season left on his deal this year, he will finally be able to make his transition to North America official.
Having the opportunity to see him play big games here would give management a great opportunity to evaluate his talent and contribution to the team.
It would also be great news for Jean-François Houle, who will also be able to count on the arrival of young defenseman Jayden Struble soon.
