Head Coach of the Montreal Canadians Martin St. Louis is returning to his head coaching duties after spending time away from the team to attend to his family.

St. Louis has been away from the Montreal Canadians since March 16th when his son Mason suffered an injury playing hockey and was hospitalized due to complications. While away, Assistant Coach Trevor Letowski took on the head coach duties.

The injury to Mason was more severe than originally thought. But now the Sixteen year old is stable and back home in Connecticut.

St. Louis put out a statement thanking the Canadians organization and hockey community.


"I'd like to thank Geoff Molson, Jeff Gorton, Kent Hughes, along with Trevor Letowski, our players, coaches, and hockey operations staff for fully understanding and facilitating my need to be with my family for the past several days. Everyone within the Canadiens organization has been very supportive of my wife Heather and me as we fully focused on our son Mason and his recovery from a hockey injury. As parents, nothing is more important to us than our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason."

"We appreciate the Canadiens organization, our fans, and the hockey community for understanding and supporting us through Mason's injury and recovery. I would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses that cared for him during this time. I'd also like to thank everyone for respecting my family and our privacy, and I ask to please maintain a focus on the Canadiens team and the remainder of the 2023-24 season."


The Canadians were 1-2-1 without St. Louis and his return is in time for the Tuesday game against the Colorado Avalanche.
