The Montreal Canadiens cut four players in advance of Monday night’s game versus the Florida Panthers. Louis Leblanc, Jarred Tinordi, Alex Avstin and, perhaps surprisingly Aaron Palushaj, were all sent packing. More on that here:
Habs cuts continue (in French)
While three of these cuts were expected, I am genuinely sorry to see Palushaj already gone.
The Canadiens hit the ice tomorrow night against the Boston Bruins, in what promises to be a spirited affair as players try to earn Jacques Martin’s eye and thus a spot on the roster. Of note, Jarred Tinordi and Louis Leblanc make their debuts for Montreal, with the latter sure to get a response on par with the praise lauded on Gui Latandresse in his first game years ago. Jeff Halpern will also be donning the CH for the first time in his career, and Aaron Palushaj, acquired from St. Louis last season in exchange for Matt D’Agostini, gets the start up front after scoring four goals in an intrasquad game last week. Curtis Sanford and Carey Price will split the net.
A non Habs note: good for the OHL for scrapping the all star game this season. The only reason these exist in hockey is to make money.
No surprises here, although interesting to note that Louis Leblanc and Jarred Tinordi are still in camp (see the press release below).
Reports so far have been that Ian Schultz has looked quite good in camp, although it would take a lot for him to threaten a veteran’s roster spot. No big noise yet from Ben Maxwell or any of the other seasoned Bulldogs pushing for a role on the Habs.
