The Canadiens have recalled goaltender Cayden Primeau from the Laval Rocket. He will join the team in Philadelphia.
Exactly what this means for the NHL goaltenders is unclear at this time. Jake Allen is starting tonight’s game, and Samuel Montembeault was expected to be up next when the Habs take on the Philadelphia Flyers. Either the latter is at less than 100%, or they simply wanted to give one of them a night completely off
Through 35 appearances with the Rocket this season, Primeau has posted a .906 save percentage and a 3.13 Goals Against Average.
To keep Laval staffed, they’ve dipped into the reserves with the Lions de Trois Rivieres.
