Montreal Canadiens reassign Harvey-Pinard, Primeau, Schueneman, and Ylönen to the AHL
The Canadiens have given their AHL affiliate some serious reinforcements for their playoff push.
On Sunday morning, the Montreal Canadiens announced that four players had been reassigned to the AHL's Laval Rocket, including Rafaël Harvey-Pinard.
The Canadiens have three days off, not playing again until Wednesday night on Long Island, while Laval plays on Monday night at Place Bell versus the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
Laval is in a desperate bid to make the AHL post-season, currently one point up on the sixth-place Cleveland Monsters for fifth in the North Division. These reinforcements have been made with the aim of ensuring a win in Monday's game, and shifting the focus of the organization to getting the young players some professional playoff experience.
