And the newest call-up for the Canadiens is...

The Montreal Canadiens have a ton of rookies this season, but I'm not sure if goaltender Jose Theodore had stopped a stranger in practice quite like this before:
Canadiens goalie Jose Theodore got a shock Monday when a stranger in full hockey equipment jumped on the ice during a Montreal practice and shot a puck at him.

The 28-year-old man from Montreal, who would only say his name was Raphael, went onto the Verdun Auditorium ice when most of the players were at the far end of the rink.

Wearing skates, full gear and a plain white hockey jersey, the man skated in on the star goalie with a stick and a puck. He was poke-checked on his first attempt and Theodore then stopped a weak wrist shot to the high glove side.
The thing I like is that Theodore played along with this obviously disturbed fellow, taking the time to turn aside one of his attempts.
