After their game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Montreal Canadiens made more cuts from training camp, assigning Jake Evans, Josh Brook, and Alex Belzile to the AHL’s Laval Rocket.

The report also lists Riley Barber as getting assigned, however CapFriendly lists him as requiring waivers before being able to report to the minors. Belzile, despite being 28 years old, gets one year of waivers exemption on his first NHL contract.

The move gives Joël Bouchard plenty of young prospects to work with from the first day of AHL camp, with more set to join the team in the coming days, though many of the remaining options will need to clear waivers as well.
