The Montreal Canadiens open up their season tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs but decided to make a move.
With the roster seemingly set, general manager Marc Bergevin announced that forward Ryan Poehling has been sent down to the Laval Rocket of the AHL.
Despite having a pretty good training camp and preseason, Poehling finds himself in the AHL once again.
The move likely comes because the Canadiens have added forward Adam Brooks to the roster.
Brooks who's familiar with the Leafs after being waived by them, is expected to find himself in the lineup tonight.
More details to come.
