The Montreal Canadiens have placed forwards Lucas Condotta and Mitchell Stephens, as well as defensemen Nicolas Beaudin and Brady Keeper, on waivers in an effort to hand them over to the Laval Rocket.
This means that the other 31 teams will be able to claim them by Sunday noon.
We can also expect other players to be removed from CH training camp after Saturday night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Condotta, a player who has never been drafted, was entitled to one match with CH in 2022-2023. He has 31 points in 72 games with the Rocket in 2022-23, his first full professional season.
Stephens is a 26-year-old center player that the Habs hired on the free agent market in 2022. He previously played for the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Detroit Red Wings.
For his part, Beaudin was chosen in the first round (27th overall) by the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2018 draft. The Canadian obtained it in return for forward Cam Hillis in October 2022. Last year with the Rocket, the Quebecer hit the target twice and provided 23 assists for 25 points in 39 games.
Finally, Keeper is a newcomer to the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge organization. He was signed as a free agent last July, after stints with the Florida Panthers, Lightning and Vancouver Canucks organizations.
