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?.

    Just a swap of farm team players that aren't even close to being good prospects as Engelhardt was way down the Wings depth chart and will become a UFA at the end of this season with the Wings very likely letting him go since they have a couple of prospects they want to sign. I'm not sure why they took Lemieux though but it's likely because they are going to trade some prospects at the deadline for some rentals.
