MONTREAL – The Canadiens made a few roster moves on Sunday evening after arriving home from Florida.
- Michael McCarron has been reassigned to St. John’s and will rejoin the IceCaps. In 20 games with the big club this year, the 6-foot-6 forward has registered one goal and one assist in addition to racking up 37 penalty minutes.
- With Nathan Beaulieu and Brett Lernout both out with injuries suffered on Thursday and Saturday night, respectively, the Canadiens have called up IceCaps blue-liner Ryan Johnston from St. John’s (emergency recall). Johnston has amassed nine assists in 34 games in his first pro season to date.
- With his final non-emergency recall of the season, Habs GM Marc Bergevin has opted to bring heavyweight forward John Scott to Montreal for the first time since the 33-year-old was traded to the Canadiens in January. Scott landed with the Habs along with Victor Bartley as part of a three-way deal that sent Jarred Tinordi to Arizona. The 2016 NHL All-Star Game MVP participated in 11 games with the Coyotes this season before taking part in 27 games with the IceCaps, where he has collected two goals and four points.
