With today being one of the last days to place players on waivers before the start of the 2017-18 season, the Montreal Canadiens made more roster moves before the pre-season waivers deadline.

The team placed Andreas Martinsen and Byron Froese on waivers, and sent goaltender Charlie Lindgren to the AHL’s Laval Rocket.
With David Schlemko potentially starting the year on the Injured Reserve list, the Habs will be able to have 24 players on the roster, but will need to make a move when Schlemko is ready to return.
That decision will probably come down to either sending Victor Mete back to the London Knights, or placing Mark Streit on waivers to play with the AHL team in Laval.
The 24 players still remaining at training camp are:
- Karl Alzner (D, NHL)
- Jordie Benn (D, NHL)
- Paul Byron (F, NHL)
- Phillip Danault (F, NHL)
- Brandon Davidson (D, NHL/AHL)
- Jacob de la Rose (F, NHL/AHL)
- Jonathan Drouin (F, NHL)
- Alex Galchenyuk (F, NHL)
- Brendan Gallagher (F, NHL)
- Ales Hemsky (F, NHL)
- Charles Hudon (F, AHL)
- Artturi Lehkonen (F, NHL, waivers exempt)
- Victor Mete (D, OHL, junior eligibility)
- Torrey Mitchell (F, NHL)
- Al Montoya (G, NHL)
- Joe Morrow (D NHL/AHL)
- Max Pacioretty (F NHL)
- Jeff Petry (D, NHL)
- Tomas Plekanec (F, NHL)
- Carey Price (G, NHL)
- David Schlemko (D, NHL)
- Andrew Shaw (F, NHL)
- Mark Streit (D, NHL)
- Shea Weber (D, NHL)
