The Next Destination for Brandon Gignac is Now Known

Published February 23, 2024 at 2:37 PM

Yesterday, the Canadiens placed forward Brandon Gignac on waivers with the intention of sending him to the Laval Rocket. However, a crucial step had to be taken – avoiding being claimed by the other 31 teams in the league.

It's often said that players who average a point per game in the AHL are more than ready for the NHL. Gignac performed well in Montreal and has 42 points in 43 games in the American Hockey League.

In the end, other teams decided to pass, and the forward remains within the organization. He has now been assigned to the Rocket, as planned.

He will undoubtedly be a valuable asset for the Canadiens' affiliate team in their quest for a playoff spot.
