Hamilton defenceman Yannick Weber has been recalled by the Canadiens for Saturday’s game in Ottawa. Defenceman Jaroslav Spacek missed practice today and will not travel to Ottawa, but not because of the flu-like symptoms which kept him out of Wednesday’s game in Tampa.
The Habs announced today that, while it was the flu which kept him out of the Tampa game, Spacek is now on the sidelines with an upper-body injury. Also missing from practice today was defenceman Paul Mara, who has missed three games with an upper-body injujry.
Mara will not accompany the team to Ottawa this evening.
