After taking time off recently to be with family, head coach Martin St. Louis is returning to his rightful position with the Montreal Canadiens.

According to a release, St. Louis rejoined the Montreal Canadiens in Denver today and will be back behind the bench for the Habs game against the Avalanche on Tuesday. St. Louis said he took time away to be with one of his sons who is battling a an injury received while playing hockey.

"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."

Hopefully, his return means the worst is over for Mason. There's no word on how or when he was injured. St. Louis has been head coach of the Montreal Canadiens since Feb. 2022. He retired from a very successful playing career in July of 2015.
