After the game on Tuesday night versus the Nashville Predators, the Montreal Canadiens sent Lukas Vejdemo back to the AHL’s Laval Rocket.

Vejdemo was up on emergency recall to get the Canadiens to the minimum of 12 forwards. His reassignment suggests someone will be returning to the lineup, or perhaps another forward will be getting the call.

It was a good final game of his stint before going back to the minors. In the third period, Vejdemo scored his first NHL goal.
