MONTREAL -- The Canadiens announced following Tuesday's game against Columbus that Zach Fucale has been reassigned to the AHL's Laval Rocket.

The 22-year-old was called up on Saturday following an injury to Al Montoya, and was Charlie Lindgren's backup against the Sabres and Blue Jackets.

Earlier in the day, the Canadiens acquired veteran netminder Antti Niemi off waivers from the Florida Panthers.

In five games with the Rocket this season, Fucale holds a 4-1-0 record, with a 3.46 GAA and 0.881 save percentage.
