4 days 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.

Tomas Plekanec to be placed on unconditional waivers

4 days 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

4 days 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.

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