Montreal Canadiens Rookie Camp Opens

Francois GendronSenior Writer ISeptember 14, 2010

The Montreal Canadiens' rookie training camp began yesterday, a sign that the next regular season is just around the corner. In this year's edition, a couple of young players attract the fans and media attention.

Defenseman P.K. Subban is one of them.

After an interesting overall performance in April and May during the late stages of the regular season and the playoffs, Subban is looking to be a part of the Canadiens' defensive unit.

Some attention will be also directed towards Louis Leblanc, the team's first-round draft pick in 2009, and towards defenseman Jared Tinordi, the latest first-round pick for the Habs.

Max Pacioretty, already a pick from the 2007 draft, will have to show more than what he did last season if he hopes to stay in Montreal.

Lars Eller, acquired in the Jaroslav Halak trade, will also be on the spotlight. Eller did not skate during the first day of the rookie camp—the remnants of an abdominal injury kept him off the ice yesterday.
