Hoffman and Brooks In The Line-Up Tonight

Montreal Canadiens’ head coach Dominique Ducharme confirmed that both Mike Hoffman and Adam Brooks will be making their Canadiens’ debuts tonight against the San Jose Shark. Jake Evans (minor injury) and Mathieu Perreault will be out to make room for the newcomers. It doesn’t look like there will be any change on defense, so Sami Niku will have to wait before getting into the formation.

The lines were as follows:

Toffoli – Suzuki – Caufield
Drouin – Dvorak – Anderson
Hoffman – Brooks – Gallagher
Lehkonen – Paquette – Armia

Romanov – Petry
Chiarot – Savard
Kulak – Wideman

The power play, sitting at 0 for 11 so far in the first three games, was lined up as:

Drouin – Dvorak – Hoffman

Caufield – Anderson – Suzuki
