Coronavirus: Canadiens, Domi agree to hold off on training camp decision

July 12 2020 11:42 PM

The Montreal Canadiens have agreed with star forward Max Domi to wait between seven and 10 days before deciding if he will join the team for training camp amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Domi has Type 1 diabetes and faces a higher chance of experiencing serious complications from COVID-19, according to the American Diabetes Association. 

The NHL is set to return on August 1 with a 24-team playoff format following the coronavirus-enforced break and the Canadiens are taking a cautious to Domi's health.

"Considering Max's health condition, both parties have agreed to take this responsible approach and to take this time to evaluate the ongoing situation, in order to make the best decision for Max's health at the end of this period," the Canadiens said in a statement on Sunday. 

Domi is in his second season with Montreal and ranked third for the Canadiens with 44 points (17 goals, 27 assists) during the regular season.

He played in all 71 games for the Canadiens before the NHL shut down on March 12 due to the coronavirus crisis. 

Montreal will open against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a best-of-five qualifying round play-in series in the Eastern Conference hub city of Toronto. 

The winners of the eight qualifying round series will move on to the first round of the playoffs.
