Journalist David Pagnotta has just reported a major scoop involving Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens, a month before the free agent period.

The TFP journalist has confirmed that forward Tanner Pearson has played his last game in the Canadiens uniform.
He will not be brought back by Kent Hughes.

Tanner Pearson will become a free agent and will not return with the Montreal Canadiens

See the exact passage:
«Another player preparing to hit the free agent market is veteran winger Tanner Pearson. He will not be re-signed by the Montreal Canadiens and will start evaluating his options by July.

The former Stanley Cup champion will be a quality addition to a contending team's third line.» - David Pagnotta

Thus, it ends for Pearson, after 54 games in Montreal, during which he scored 5 goals and 13 points.
We wish him the best of luck moving forward!
Recall that Pearson was acquired by Kent Hughes on September 19, in a trade with the Vancouver Canucks.
The Canadiens had then acquired him along with a 3rd round draft pick, in exchange for goaltender Casey DeSmith.
Speaking of players that Kent Hughes will let go, according to circulating information, forward Cédrick Guindon and Finnish player Petteri Nurmi will also not return to the Montreal Canadiens organization.
Details to follow.
