After a tumultuous 2016-17 campaign split between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Arizona Coyotes, it seems centreman Peter Holland is headed for a demotion.

The 26-year-old is expected to be placed on waivers by the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston.

Holland signed a two-year, $1.35-million deal with Montreal in July. According to Johnston, only the second year of that deal is of the one-way variety.
