Canadian : Michael Chaput in tie

Look at this article

As many observers had expected the day before, the Montreal canadiens placed the name of the attacker Michael Chaput in the second balloting, Tuesday.

The other formations of the national League can claim the player-of-centre 26-year-old by Wednesday noon. If it does not find a taker, he will be demoted to the Rocket of Laval, in the american League. The club-school of the Habs will visit the Comets to Utica, on Wednesday.

Chaput has been hit following the arrival of Dale Weise and Nate Thompson in the Canadian. The Quebec has registered five assists in 32 games with the troops of head coach Claude Julien this season, while maintaining a differential of -5. Saturday, he found the party in the face of the Toronto Maple Leafs with a record of -2.

Paul Byron absent for at least another three games

The Montreal canadiens must take his evil in patience, in the case of Paul Byron, who will travel with his teammates this week.


Always assessed on a daily basis, the attacker will not participate in any games scheduled against the Predators in Nashville on Thursday, the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday and the Florida Panthers on Sunday. His head coach Claude Julien noted Tuesday that he wanted to announce good news about it when the team returns in the city.

Byron is away since 3 February because of an injury to the forearm, and his name has been placed on the list of lame last weekend. He scored 19 points, including 10 goals, in 36 outings this season.
