Ducharme obtained his second dose of the vaccine on June 9, per Sportsnet’s Eric Engels.

Within the wake of his isolation and potential constructive check, Montreal followers took to Twitter to help Ducharme and the Canadiens.

Ducharme changed Claude Julien as Canadiens coach on Feb. 24 after Montreal misplaced back-to-back video games towards Ottawa and 5 of six video games. After that, Ducharme went 15-16-7 for the Canadiens and led them to the postseason, the place they’ve gone 9-4 in 13 video games to achieve the Stanley Cup semifinals.

In Ducharme’s absence, assistant coaches Luke Richardson and Alex Burrows will doubtless lead the squad. Richardson has been with the Canadiens since 2018 whereas Burrows, a former ahead recognized for his biting antics in the course of the 2011 Stanley Cup Closing, was employed as an assistant after Ducharme was promoted to interim coach earlier this yr.

The Canadiens-Golden Knights collection is tied 1-1 going into Recreation 3. Montreal was already an underdog on this collection, so it must overcome this newest setback to maintain its surprising playoff run going.
