With 15 healthy forwards on the main roster, the Canadiens will need to decide what to do with Juraj Slafkovsky: send him to Laval or make room by waiving a veteran.

Head coach Martin St-Louis gives his thoughts on Juraj Slafkovsky’s progress this season:

Cole Caufield and Christian Dvorak drove the Canadiens’ offence last week, but it was the play from a rookie pairing that impressed the most.
