In the past few hours, the general manager of the Habs, Kent Hughes, made a major announcement for the upcoming season. Indeed, he placed forward Joel Armia and defenseman Gustav Lindstrom on NHL waivers. So, we will have to wait until tomorrow to see if the two players will be claimed by another NHL team.

However, this news also confirms a big rumor that was circulating recently, namely that the Montreal Canadiens will start the year with three goalies on their roster. The young 24-year-old American goaltender, Cayden Primeau, has thus forced management to grant him a spot with the main team due to his good performances during training camp.

While this is great news for the goaltender, it will be very interesting to see how Kent Hughes intends to manage this matter. Behind Samuel Montembeault and Jake Allen in the team's hierarchy, Cayden Primeau might have very few opportunities in front of the net, which could greatly hinder his development.

Could the management cause another surprise by making a trade involving Jake Allen or even Cayden Primeau soon? One thing's for sure, it's a situation to watch closely!
