Two more paper transactions by Kent Hughes



"The Canadiens made paper transactions with Joshua Roy and Jayden Struble so they are eligible to be returned to Laval." - Montreal Canadiens

Therefore, they become options for the end of the season and for the Rocket's playoffs, if applicable.


Roy, 20 years old, a 5th round pick in 2021, has 8 points in 18 NHL games and 32 points in 40 games this season in the AHL.

Struble, 22 years old, a 2nd round pick in 2019, has 7 points in 41 NHL games and 6 points in 12 games this season in the AHL.

They could really help the Rocket, and the plan was clearly for them to stay a bit longer in Laval, but they simply do not give the Habs management a choice to keep them with the big club.

They are expected to finish the season with the Canadiens and to be called up before the next game.

Details to follow.
