Rinat Valiev went down with an injury of Thursday night, leaving the Montreal Canadiens down a defenceman. The team has brought Brett Lernout up from the AHL to take his spot.

Lernout played three games with the NHL club earlier this season. He has yet to register a point in six career NHL games.

He has eight points through 54 games in the AHL this year.
