After been sent down to the AHL right before the holiday roster freeze, Sven Andrighetto has been re-added to the active roster of the Montreal Canadiens.
Habs call up Sven Andrighetto from St. John's— Аrpon Basu (@ArponBasu) December 26, 2016
Andrighetto was not in the lineup for the St. John’s IceCaps on Monday afternoon, suggesting that his demotion was merely a cost-saving measure to reduce his impact on the salary cap this season.
He will be able to join the team when it heads on a late-year road trip to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers in back-to-back games later this week.
Andrighetto has two points in eight NHL games played so far this season.
