Canadiens cut 14 players from training camp

The Montreal Canadiens pared their training camp roster by 14 players Monday.

Ten players -- forwards Joonas Nattinen, Stephen MacAulay, Stefan Fournier, Sven Andrighetto, Louis Leblanc and Erik Nystrom, goaltender Robert Mayer and defensemen Morgan Ellis, Darren Dietz and Dalton Thrower -- were sent to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League.

Defenseman Matt Lashoff will be invited to report to the Bulldogs training camp.

The Canadiens returned Martin Reway, Charles Hudon and Zachary Fucale to their respective teams in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Reway was sent back to Gatuneau, Hudon to Chicoutimi and Fucale was returned to Halifax.

The Canadiens have 38 players remaining in camp. That includes five sidelined due to injuries: Brian Gionta, George Parros, Nathan Beaulieu, Steve Quailer and Alexei Emelin.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
