Cole Caufield concerns: Alex Burrows had a lot to say

Published August 31, 2023 at 8:53

Cole Caufield is an important player for the Canadiens, the top scorer by far. In fact, with the current edition of the team, I can't think of anyone who can score 30 goals except him, who is almost certain to reach that mark if he stays healthy.

Speaking of health, we don't know what to expect because he missed the last 36 games of the season, in addition to undergoing shoulder surgery. Alex Burrows has had much the same injury and surgery throughout his career.

According to the assistant coach, there's really nothing to worry about.

I had an injury very similar to his during my career. I also had to undergo an operation. I had to undergo a rehabilitation period of almost six months. But it's back to 100% and I'd even say it's my strongest shoulder.

"I know Cole followed the doctors' protocol to the letter. He's been training hard. I know he's going to come back fit in the hopes of having a big season with us." - Alex Burrows

That's very reassuring. It's safe to say that Cole will be 100% ready and still able to thread the needle on a regular basis. That's why Kent Hughes has signed him to a lucrative long-term contract.
