MONTREAL – Olivier Latendresse, Guillaume’s older brother, will close out the 2007-08 season as a member of Canadiens organization as the Phoenix Coyotes loaned the forward’s services to Montreal.
In 27 games with the Central Hockey League's Arizona Sundogs, the 22-year-old collected 22 goals and 30 assists, ranking him third in team scoring. Latendresse, who also suited up for seven games with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL, will join the Cinncinati Cyclones of the East Coast Hockey League.
In return for Latendresse, the Canadiens loaned Cory Urquhart to Phoenix. The Habs’ second-round pick in the 2003 draft split his time between Hamilton and Cinncinati this year, notching nine points in 21 games with the Bulldogs and 23 points in 21 contests with the Cyclones. Urquhart will join the Sundogs.
The deal between the two teams will officially be announced at the end of the current season.
