Having invited 61 players to participate in training camp, the Montreal Canadiens had whittled their roster down as pre-season was set to start. After their game on Thursday night, the team announced a cut of seven more players.

The seven players let go are:

  • Simon Bourque (D, AHL)
  • Thomas Ebbing (F, AHL)
  • Stefan Leblanc (D, AHL)
  • Tom Parisi (D, AHL)
  • Niki Petti (F, NHL)
  • Yannick Veilleux (F, AHL)
  • Antoine Waked (F, AHL)

Jeremiah Addison, who had been slated to begin his professional career with the Laval Rocket in October, was also forced to miss the training period entirely after sustaining a shoulder injury that required surgery. He is out indefinitely as he recovers.

The Canadiens also lost Noah Juulsen to a foot injury just as pre-season started.

That leaves 44 players remaining at training camp. Those still with the team for at least the first pre-season game on Monday are:
