According to Renaud Lavoie, a reporter for TVA, the Habs forward is expected to get the green light for contact at some point this week. With this being said, it is not sure whether or not Bournival will be ready to play on the weekend but he is close.
#premiertrio last night, we mention Michael Bournival should receive the green light this week for contact. Don't know yet if he'll play Fri

There is also speculation he will be sent down to the Hamilton Bulldogs for some conditioning before playing again in the NHL.
. @bshah79 Wouldn't surprise me if #Habs give Bournival a pair of conditioning games w/ @BulldogsAHL this weekend.Bournival has been out since early November since suffering an upper-body/shoulder injury. He has only played two games with the Habs so far this year.
