The Montreal Canadiens have sent defenceman Corey Schueneman to the Laval Rocket of the American Hockey League, the team announced on Wednesday.

The Canadiens have loaned defenseman Corey Schueneman to the Laval Rocket.
Schueneman was recalled when it was revealed that Mike Matheson would be out for eight weeks. The Rocket play Wednesday night at home against the Belleville Senators, and Schueneman will be eligible to take part in his first game since the pre-season. He was originally recalled days before the Rocket opened their season.
The Canadiens leave for a four-game road trip after practice today, and it is possible that they recall someone for the trip, but they have already indicated that Joel Edmundson and Joel Armia will join the team on the trip, so Edmundson might be ready to return.
Edmundson and Armia skated in non-contact jerseys on Wednesday at practice.

Joel Armia and Joel Edmundson continue to train with non-contact jerseys and both will be on the trip.
It is not expected that the Canadiens will add another defenceman to the roster, and will head out on the trip with six healthy defenders, plus Edmundson, which indicates he may be ready for game action at some point on the trip.

Mais Joel Edmundson sera du voyage. Un signe d'un retour probable.
Juraj Slafkovský, who has been out with an upper-body injury for the last two games, also returned to practice and will travel with the team. He has yet to be cleared for game action, however.

Juraj Slafkovsky hasn't yet received the green light to play, but he will make the trip with the team.#GoHabsGo
