The Habs also acquired former Oiler and Predator Devan Dubnyk who was assigned to the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs.
In more sobering news Habs prospect Tim Bozon is listed in critical condition due to an ongoing battle with a severe case of meningitis.
Around the NHL
A lot of players were traded yesterday but SBNation's NHL page has you covered with a complete list of trades.
The biggest news of the day was the Rangers and Lightning swapping captains as Ryan Callahan and Martin St.Louis found new homes...Blueshirt Banter and Raw Charge each have their own views on the deal.
After missing 4+ months and the Olympics Steven Stamkos is finally ready to play after being given the green light by doctors.
Pavel Datsyuk will be shut down for 3 weeks due to a recurring knee injury.
The Jets Mark Scheifele will also be out 6-8 weeks with an MCL injury.
Ryan Kesler tweeted this and it's pretty depressing.

Tim Thomas is a big drama queen which possibly led to his trade to Dallas.
