Montreal Canadiens assign Ryan White and Aaron Palushaj to Hamilton Bulldogs

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens assigned forwards Ryan White and Aaron Palushaj to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League on Monday.

White has yet to play a game with the Canadiens this season due to a sports hernia suffered during training camp.

The 23-year-old has seven points (two goals, five assists) in 43 NHL games.

Palushaj has one assist in 17 games with the Canadiens this season.

Recalled from the Bulldogs on Feb. 3, the 22-year old forward leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists) in 29 games this season.

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.
