Éric Gélinas Invited to Camp on PTO

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that defenseman Éric Gélinas will attend training camp on a professional try out. The 26 year-old Vanier native was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the 2nd round of the 2009 Entry Draft.

Over the course of his career, Gélinas has appeared in 189 games with the Devils and the Colorado Avalanche.

Marc Bergevin has been known to stock up on depth defensemen, but this season appears to have reached a new level. With the addition of Gélinas, Montreal will have six left-shot defenseman attending camp.
