Nikita Scherbak reassigned to the Laval Rocket by the Montreal Canadiens

The move suggests Scherbak is close to a return after sustaining a knee injury with the Canadiens.

Club de hockey Canadien, Inc.

The Montreal Canadiens announced that Nikita Scherbak has been reassigned to the Laval Rocket.

The move likely signifies that he’s ready to begin getting back into game shape after recovering from knee surgery at the end of October.

He earned the call-up after a great start to the season with Laval, and was just starting to get comfortable with the NHL game at the time of his injury. Though he didn’t have any points in his two NHL games played, he was showing his playmaking skills, and hopefully he can recovery fully and get back to that level soon.
