Help On The Way For Canadiens

Montreal Canadiens coach Dominique Ducharme stated that forward Josh Anderson is expected to return to the lineup for Monday afternoon's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

After December 2nd's contest against the Colorado Avalanche, Anderson has not played due to an upper-body injury. Before his injury, he was off to a pretty solid campaign. In 25 games thus far, he has seven goals and six assists. Although the Canadiens have been struggling, he's actually performing at a higher rate of production than last year.

The Canadiens have so many players out for multiple different reasons, so it's good to hear that Anderson is returning. With this, it could give Montreal a better chance of defeating the Coyotes. Keep in mind Arizona has an 8-23-4 record, while Montreal is 7-24-5. Thus, it's a battle of the bottom feeders.

Anderson will be a player to watch during this contest, so let's see how the power forward does.
