As you probably already know, a bombshell exploded in the Montreal Canadiens environment today, as we learned that Cole Caufield's season was unfortunately over.

We have to say that no one was expecting this, especially since number 22 looked very comfortable in practice yesterday. There was no indication that this would happen to him.

"Weird, but mostly a shame about Caufield. VERY normal practice yesterday. He even fooled around with Robidas along the ramp at the end." - Marc-Andre Perreault

So the Habs offered a little more information on the matter, much to the delight of fans worried about the situation.

"The Habs inform us that Cole Caufield had been playing for some time despite this right shoulder injury.

More information to come" - Patrick Friolet

"Cole Caufield had been playing with his shoulder injury for quite some time. He was often seen wincing at the bench for the past few weeks." - Renaud Lavoie

So we learn that it wasn't an injury that appeared in the last few hours, rather it was a problem that had been lingering for a while. The organization finally made the decision that enough was enough and that he needed surgery.

It was a difficult decision to make, especially since Caufield was playing good hockey even with a major injury.

It's incredible to think that Caufield was playing so well while he was injured. We admire the strength of the young man!

More details will follow.
