The Montreal Canadiens' fourth line had a very dissapointing Saturday night as they gave up two quick goals to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Those two goals haunted the Canadiens' for the rest of the game and many believed there needed to be changes on the fourth line.
Well, Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin didn't wait long to change it.
The Canadiens acquired center Nate Thompson from the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.
The 34 year old is in the final year of his contract and has just six points in 53 games but has a 53.1% faceoff percentage on the season 52.5% in his career. He waived his modified no trade clause to accept a trade to Montreal.
Another interesting point is that Thompson is +3 on a terrible Kings team.
Looks like Claude Julien will get a fourth line that he'll love in Deslaurier - Thompson - Weise.
The Canadiens send a 4th round pick the other way.
