Michael Ryder joined his teammates at the ACC on Wednesday morning and underwent his medical exam. He did not take part in the morning skate but will play against the Leafs.
Ryder will wear No.73 with the Canadiens and Brendan Gallagher will switch to No.11, the number he wore with the Vancouver Giants in Junior.
On where Ryder will be slotted into the Canadiens’ lineup, Michel Therrien replied “You’ll find out tonight.”
