It's that time of year when there's a lot of movement in the NHL, aside from the trade deadline, and the Canadiens organization hasn't been spared.

First off, Kent Hughes announced the signing of Alex Barré-Boulet, who has been with the Lightning organization since 2018-19, with a brief stint with the Kraken in 2021-22.
It's a one-way contract, but chances are he'll be subject to waivers and likely start the season with the Rocket.
On the Canadiens' side, they decided not to tender a qualifying offer to Jesse Ylonen, but kept the door open. However, he didn't stay a free agent for long, as he signed a one-year deal with the Lightning.

Also, defenseman Tobie Paquette-Bisson is leaving for the Lightning organization, having been excellent with the Rocket last year, mainly with a +21 differential.
"Former Canadiens organization members Ylonen and Paquette-Bisson head to Tampa Bay, while Alex Barré-Boulet goes the other way."

- Etienne Ferland

It really seems like a disguised trade, but all these players were unrestricted free agents, and it's a nice coincidence.
Good luck to Jesse and Tobie with the Lightning, and welcome to Alex with the Canadiens!
