Not many surprises here, as they’re mostly players expected to remain in junior, and those equipped only with AHL contracts. Zachary Fucale being sent down to the IceCaps is probably the biggest name out of the group.
Yuri Alexandrov was released from his tryout.
The leaves 36 players at camp. The Canadiens will see their next action tonight against the Leafs at 7 PM Eastern time.
