HABS MAKE A TRADE WITH THE COYOTES
Today in Montreal, after the Canadiens closed door meeting, Pierre Gauthier traded Brock Trotter ad a 7th round pick in 2012 to the Phoenix Coyotes for Garrett Stafford and Petteri Nokelainen. In 5 games this season, Nokelainen registered 1 assist and is expected to add size to the Habs. In 6 games in the AHL, Garrett Stafford registered 1 goal and 3 assists and will be a big key to the defense of the Habs. The Canadiens also sent down forwards Andreas Engqvist and Aaron Palushaj to the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL). The Habs also called up forward Michael Blunden.
