You can now follow new Habs forward Rene Bourque on Twitter. @rbourque17 will wear No. 27 with the Canadiens.
Bourque will have to wait another day to meet the Montreal media, not scheduled to arrive in his new NHL city until late on Friday afternoon. He will hit the ice for the first time with the Habs for Saturday’s morning skate, but with one game left to serve of his five-game suspension, he won’t see action in his new jersey until Sunday against the Rangers.
Raphael Diaz took a therapy day on Friday and didn’t practice with the team.
