Forward Brian Gionta participated in his first contact practice with the Montreal Canadiens since the start of training camp on Wednesday.

The Canadiens captain, who underwent surgery on his injured biceps in the off-season, had been skating with the team in a non-contact capacity since last week.

Gionta skated on a line with Michael Bournival and Martin St Pierre in Wednesday's practice.
