Pacioretty heading home
Max Pacioretty's Swiss working vacation is over. The Habs' power forward is returning from Ambri-Piotta just days after he was a "healthy scratch" because the club was over the quota for non-Swiss players, but there are indications health questions could be involved too.
Pacioretty may have some minor injuries that he wants treated by North American specialists. He's also reportedly been suffering from a flu bug while in Switzerland.
Coming off his first 30+ goal season in the NHL, Pacioretty scored just 1 goal, 0 assists in 5 games (4PIM, -2) in the Swiss league.
