Montreal does not have representation at two major U.S. all-star games with Canadian prospects in attendance, according to RDS reporter Didier Ormejuste.
According to multiple sources, The Alouettes are the only @CFL team not attending the @Shrine_Game and the @NFLPABowl this week. Those two bowls are great opportunities to find young players and add them to the negotiation list. SMH

The Alouettes hold the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 CFL draft and potential candidates for that pick University of Connecticut offensive lineman Trey Rutherford, University of Alberta offensive lineman Mark Korte and University of Montreal receiver Regis Cibasu were at those events, the former the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and the latter two the East-West Shrine Game.
Practice and game film from the events can be obtained easily and most likely will be by Montreal’s scouting staff. However, it’s a good bet every other CFL team had scouts in attendance at those events.
UPDATE: The Alouettes responded to the report on Twitter.
