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

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
