Alexei Emelin could be a possibility for the Winter Classic.

The Montreal Canadiens announced that Alexei Emelin, Jarred Tinordi and Devante Smith-Pelly will watch the game from the press box on Monday.

Sven Andrighetto, Mark Barberio and Greg Pateryn will enter the lineup in their place. Neither of these players have any fantasy value moving forward.

Alexei Emelin is not hurt, according to Renaud Lavoie. Rather the Canadiens are letting him get back up to speed.

Emelin has skated in 18 games thus far, but has missed time with a lower body injury already. Montreal is apparently just doing what all good teams do, use their depth to their advantage.

Alexei Emelin and Bud Holloway will each be scratched from Saturday's tilt with New Jersey.

It'll be Emelin's second straight game in the stands, which makes one wonder if he isn't nursing another injury. Be that as it may, he's still not much of a fantasy option. The rugged veteran defender has 14 PIMs, 23 blocks, and 55 hits through 18 games.

Alexei Emelin and Christian Thomas will be scratched from Friday's tilt with New Jersey.

Unfortunately neither Emelin nor Thomas have much fantasy value. As the rugged defender's noteworthy marks on the stat sheet are his 14 PIMs, 23 blocks, and 55 hits through 18 games. The young Thomas meanwhile has just a point in 21 career NHL games.

Alexei Emelin (lower body) is listed as day-to-day.

He will sit out Monday's game against Vancouver, which will be the second match he has missed due to the ailment.
