Prust excited to play for Montreal fans
Nearly two weeks into the NHL lockout, many players are starting to get that caged look to them from too many half hearted practices and too few games.
Enter "Le Tournee des Joureurs", started by Flyer's forward Max Talbot and defenceman Bruno Gervais. The series of exhibition games kicking off tonight in Chateaugauy will feature two dozen NHL players in need of more than just training and shinny.
Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust, who just signed a four year, $10 million contract says it can be tough to keep up the motivation to train for a season, when you don't know when that season is going to start.
The league announced this afternoon the cancellation of all of the remaining pre-season games. The NHL and the NHL PA is set to meet tomorrow and through the weekend. The regular season is scheduled to begin October 10th.
Prust says while it's tough to sit back and watch the season start to slip away, he says they have to stick to their guns for what they think is a fair deal.
