The Montreal Canadiens revealed some unfortunate news this morning and it might be worse than expected.
It was revealed that Hoffman failed his physical this morning as he's dealing with an injury and would miss camp.
It might be worse than that.
Head coach Dominque Ducharme spoke with the media after the first day of camp and was asked about Hoffman's injury.
Ducharme revealed that Hoffman was injured during one of his final offseason skates away from Montreal and called the team immediately.
He tried to get some work in here before camp but it seems it could be worse than expected and Ducharme said the forward is going under tests and could miss the start of the season.
Mike Hoffman could miss the start of the season, according to Dominique Ducharme. @CanadiensMTL
