Canadiens use buyout on defenseman Kaberle
The Montreal Canadiens announced Friday they have used a compliance buyout on defenseman Tomas Kaberle.

The Montreal Canadiens announced Friday they have used a compliance buyout on defenseman Tomas Kaberle.

The remaining year on Kaberle's contract had a salary-cap charge of $4.25 million.

Kaberle, 35, appeared in 10 games for Montreal this season, with three assists and a plus-4 rating.

The native of Rakovnik, Czech Republic, was selected in the eighth round (No. 204) of the 1996 NHL Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs. He has 87 goals and 476 assists in 984 NHL games with the Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Carolina Hurricanes and Canadiens. He's played in the NHL All-Star Game four times and helped the Bruins win the Stanley Cup in 2011.

The Canadiens have used the two compliance buyouts allowed by the Collective Bargaining Agreement. They used their first prior to the start of the season to buy out Scott Gomez's contract.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
