Habs Make A (Minor) Trade!

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired right-winger Brett Engelhardt from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for forward Francis Lemieux,

Engelhardt, 27, played 42 games in the AHL this season, with Grand Rapids, scoring eight goals and 16 points. He has 52 goals and 121 points in 238 career AHL games.

Lemieux, 23, had six assists in 33 games with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs this season. Lemieux, signed as a free agent by the Canadiens in December 2005, has never played an NHL game.


I dont know what were really doing making this trade, or what it does for us, but i think it is Bob trying to give the bulldogs some depth for maybe he might be trading a prospect with the team as part of a package on the trade deadline?.
