MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Zack Kassian to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday in exchange for goaltender Ben Scrivens.
Scrivens, 29, posted a 2-6-1 record with AHL Bakersfield this season. He had a 3.47 goals-against average and .893 save percentage.
In 129 career NHL regular-season games, Scrivens has a 42-56-17 mark with a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage.
Kassian, 24, was acquired by the Canadiens last summer but did not play in a regular-season game for Montreal.
He was cleared to play in mid-December after spending more than two months in a substance abuse program. Kassian then cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL St. John's.
The physical winger has 35 goals and 31 assists in 198 career NHL regular-season games.
Also Monday, the Oilers recalled goaltender Eetu Laurikainen from HPK of the Finnish Elite League and assigned him to Bakersfield.
