The Canadian announced that he had ceded goalkeeper Charlie Lindgren to the Laval Rocket on Thursday morning. To replace him in the reserve team, Michael McNiven does the opposite.

The team say Lindgren will be available for Friday’s Rocket game against the Toronto Marlies.
Lindgren has only played two games this season, both in the American League, on February 24 and 27. He won and suffered one loss, and allowed four goals on 32 shots. The 27-year-old doorman has spent the majority of his time with the reserve squad.
On Wednesday, Lindgren was with the Canadian in Toronto, but it was Cayden Primeau who was in uniform as Jake Allen’s assistant, in the absence of Carey Price (lower body).
After Wednesday’s loss, the Habs resume action Thursday at the Bell Center against the Winnipeg Jets. Only reservists Primeau, Michael Frolik and Otto Leskinen skated during the passage of PressThursday morning with goaltending coach Sean Burke. The fact that Price did not jump on the ice, he who has been inactive since Monday, suggests that he will not be at his post Thursday night.
Dominique Ducharme will however address the media at the end of Thursday afternoon and will be able to take stock of the situation.
