MONTREAL - The Canadiens announced on Wednesday that they've recalled forward Lukas Vejdemo from the AHL's Laval Rocket on an emergency basis.
He will join the team in Tampa and will be available for Thursday night's game against the Lightning.
This is Vejdemo's second stint with Montreal this season. He made his League debut on New Year's Eve in Carolina, and played three more games for the Canadiens from January 2-7. The 24-year-old is still looking for his first point in the NHL.
A native of Stockholm, Sweden, Vejdemo is in his second season with the Rocket. He has nine goals and 19 points in 46 games in Laval in 2019-20.
In his rookie campaign in the AHL, the 6-foot-2, 194-pounder put up 13 goals and 29 points in 66 contests with Laval.
Vejdemo was the Canadiens' third-round pick (87th overall) in 2015.
