Laval Rocket general manager Larry Carrière announced today that forward Martin Reway made the decision to return to Europe. The 22-year-old Czech player was released by the Canadiens organization on Sunday, following a mutual agreement to terminate his contract, allowing him to pursue his professional career.

"Head coach Sylvain Lefebvre, Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin and myself had a meeting with Martin following the game on October 25. We discussed some options, and we advised Martin that we were totally dedicated to continue working with him to help regain his physical condition and remain with the Laval Rocket," said Carrière.
