The Montreal Canadiens have moved on from Charles Hudon and Hudon has moved on from the Canadiens, at least physically.
Hudon signed with Lausanne in Europe recently and has been off to a great start with four points in two games.
His career high in Montreal was 30 points in 72 games back in 2017-18 however has never been able to get close to those numbers again and registered just two points in 15 games this past season.
After two games with Lausanne, the former Habs' forward decided to take a shot at the Canadiens and how he was used.
"It's funny to say, but after two periods with Lausanne, I already had more minutes than after my two playoff games with the Canadian," said Hudon, in an interview with the Journal . "Yes, I still want to play in the NHL. I tell myself that I can go back, regardless of the team. But for now, I'm just focusing on Lausanne. "
Hudon confirmed that he had asked for a trade but the Canadiens just couldn't find a deal that worked.
“I received a little information. I know they looked [for a deal], but for a few years now, nothing has worked" Hudon explained. "I had planned to just wait. And for the past few years, I've been doing just that, waiting. I didn't focus too much on that though. My goal was aimed, I wanted to go to Europe. I needed to play. The decision is made. I don't know if this is the right choice. Only the future will tell me. But for now, I'm happy to be here in Lausanne. "
