Montreal Canadiens forward Michael Bournival has been working on recovering from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for several weeks. Bournival has joined his teammates at practice over the last couple of days but still needs time before returning to the lineup.

Bournival is inching closer to returning. He told the media after practice on Tuesday afternoon that he took a big step in his recovery but still unknown when he will return.

Coach Michel Therrien told media after practice that Bournival will not be dressed on Wednesday night's game when the team takes on the Minnesota Wild.

There is a possibility that Bournival will be able to return on the weekend but no guarantee. The team wants to make sure he will be 100% healthy before playing again.

Bournival has only played two games with the Habs this season after being a healthy scratch through the beginning of the season. He was injured on his second game return.
