BROSSARD - The Canadiens sent defenseman David Schlemko down to the Laval Rocket on a conditioning stint.

Hampered by an injury to his right hand since the start of training camp, the Edmonton native has not played all season. He was close to making a return last month, having played a game for the Rocket on October 13, but he went under the knife five days later to remove a bone fragment.

Schlemko re-joined his teammates at practice earlier in the week and will be in uniform on Friday night in Laval when the Habs' farm club takes on the Utica Comets.
