“He is being followed closely by the team’s physicians,” the Peel County organization said of Hoffman in a short news release. He will continue to follow the guidelines and protocols established by the NHL.”
This season, his first in a confinement organisation, the 32-year-old has played only 19 out of 31 matches, due to two separate injuries, one in the lower body and one in the upper body. Thus he heated up the scoring paper eight times and maintained a weak difference of -12.
Earlier, the association also specified that the Canadian would have to be inactive until the return of the holiday break on December 26. On Sunday, the Habs indicated they would not be training at their Brossard complex, which will remain closed, while players saw their holiday break start earlier than expected.
