Writing was on wall for Tomas Plekanec with Canadiens

2 monthes ago   |   By Sportsnet

BROSSARD, Que. - For the vast majority of his time with the Montreal Canadiens , Tomas Plekanec was defined by the fact neither his high-level play nor his demeanour ever varied much. Of course, his performance was bound to trail off at some point and, on his final day as a Hab, his countenance - if ever so slightly - finally cracked, too.
Sitting beside GM Marc Bergevin at the team's practice facility, Plekanec was his soft-spoken self while discussing the fact the Canadiens had placed him on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract. He was a company man until the...

Tomas Plekanec to be placed on unconditional waivers

2 monthes ago   |   By Yardbarker

Despite the Montreal Canadiens suffering several injuries to their forward group, the team announced Friday that they will place Tomas Plekanec on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a mutual contract termination. Plekanec hasn't seen much ice time this season but is close to returning from his latest minor injury, and may want to look for an opportunity elsewhere. Otherwise, this could just be the end of a playing career that spanned more than 1,000 games and only strayed from Montreal for 17 of them. At the press conference to discuss the move with the media, GM Marc Bergevin...

Canadiens to place Plekanec on unconditional waivers to terminate contract

2 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

The Montreal Canadiens will place forward Tomas Plekanec on unconditional waivers at noon Friday in order to terminate his contract, the team announced. The veteran forward has struggled to remain in the lineup for any significant period of time this year, having played in just three of the Canadiens' 16 games this season.

Plekanec played in his 1,000th career game earlier this season, scoring his lone goal of...
