The Habs have placed forward Kenny Agostino on waivers. Agostino has appeared in 36 games for the Habs this season, recording 11 points (two goals, nine assists). He also has 10 points in 12 games with the AHL's Laval Rocket.

Defenceman Karl Alzner has cleared waivers and reassigned to the AHL. He was waived in the wake of the Habs acquiring defenceman Christian Folin from the Philadelphia Flyers.
