On Thursday, Habs GM Marc Bergevin announced that Martin Reway — the club’s fourth round pick at the 2013 draft — would miss this month’s training camp due to a virus.
Reway, 21, is currently hospitalized in Slovakia where he is undergoing treatment for a virus.
The Canadiens’ head physician, Dr. David Mulder, is closely monitoring Martin Reway’s health status, in collaboration with the medical team in Slovakia.
There were no details on what virus Reway is currently dealing with.
A former offensive star with QMJHL Gatineau, Reway’s spent the last two years playing professionally in Europe, split between Sparta Praha of the Czech League and Swiss club Fribourg-Gotteron.
Reway was also a driving force for Slovakia’s surprise bronze medal win at the 2015 World Juniors, finishing with nine points in seven games.
