Tuesday morning Habs Links

Getting antsy for the 2011-12 season to start up? Yeah same hear, fortunately there is some activity and news going on for the next few weeks, until the August "slumber" leading up to training camps.

While many of us plan our summer vacations, weddings, or in Mike Richards case whine about moving expenses, some are doing a little better for the planet.

Earlier this afternoon, P.K. Subban arrived in Haiti, along with former Hab Georges Laraque on the latest World Vision humanitarian expedition.

Subban talked to the media, prior to his departure, and will be tweeting from the Carribean nation throughout the trip. He also spoke on the addition of Eric Cole and the departure of Roman Hamrlik.

Back in the home office, the Canadiens announced that Brock Trotter is officially returning to the fold, after a year playing with Riga of the KHL. Trotter's return had been first reported by HockeyBuzz's Steven Hindle and later confirmed by PuckDaddy!'s Dmitri Chesnokov via Twitter.

The one-year, two-way deal is reported to be worth $550,000. Trotter spoke to CJAD's Abe Hefter Monday.

Phase two of the Canadiens development camp takes place this Wednesday at the Bell Sportsplex in Brossard. The three day session features two-a-day on-ice sessions that will be open to the public. Seven of the eleven attendees were selected by the Canadiens at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
