The Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning swapped goaltenders Monday night, as the Habs acquired Karri Ramo in exchange for Cedrick Desjardins.

Ramo, 24, spent the 2009-10 season with Omsk in the KHL. He went 21-17-4 with a 2.11 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. A sixth-round draft choice (No. 191) in 2004, Ramo is currently a restricted free agent. He last played with Tampa Bay in 2008-09, when he appeared in 24 games and posted a 4-10-7 record with a 3.66 GAA.

Desjardins, who turns 25 on Sept. 30, has yet to appear in an NHL game. In 45 games with AHL Hamilton last season, the Edmundston, New Brunswick, native went 29-9-4 with a 2.00 GAA and a .919 save percentage. Desjardins signed with the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones as an undrafted free agent in 2006.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
