In their three-hour journey through the Canadiens’ first day of training camp Wednesday in Brossard the 55 invited players will undergo medicals and physical testing.
They’ll see the team’s doctor and dentist and be weighed and measured.
They’ll also smile for the camera — or not — for their official NHL head shot.
P.K. Subban who won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenceman last season is going into camp the same weight he was last year — “I’m always in between 218 220” — although he said he’s probably leaner.
“I’ve worked hard this summer. I feel good. That’s the most important thing” Subban said. “As long as I feel good and I feel comfortable and confident then everything else should take care of itself.”
Subban jumped back into his training in May. The summer regimen included several twice-a-day workouts and a 21-day no-carb diet.

The 35-year-old had one year and $4.5 million US left on his three-year contract that carried a cap hit of $4.25 million. [...]
NâexagÃ©rons rien, la ligne bleue du Canadien ne regorge pas de talent comme lâa Ã©tÃ© le Big Three Ã lâÃ©poque de Larry Robinson, Serge Savard et Guy Lapointe mais la liste de dÃ©fenseurs ne cesse de sâallonger pour le CH. P.K. Subban, Andrei Markov et Josh Gorges peuvent Ãªtre considÃ©rÃ©s, dans la LNH dâaujourdâhui, comme un solide...
The Globe and Mail's Eric Duhatschek believes that the recent re-signings of players like Daniel Cleary and Nazem Kadri, combined with last year's relatively painless re-signings of training camp "hold-outs" like P.K. Subban and the relatively few numbers of holdouts this year illustrate the fact that extended holdouts--which used to be the one and only way for...
