Montreal Canadiens standout forward Cole Caufield told reporters Monday that he will start training camp on time this fall after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum.

Speaking at the Canadiens' charity golf tournament, Caufield offered a positive update on his shoulder, which was surgically repaired Feb. 1 amid a lost season for Montreal.

"It feels better than it did before, I can tell you that," Caufield said of his shoulder, "so I'm really excited, ready to go, and it feels 100 percent."
