To the surprise of many fans, the Montreal Canadiens placed Brandon Gignac on waivers yesterday afternoon to free up a spot for newcomer Colin White.

Last-minute announcement: A verdict has now been rendered



Moreover, in the last few minutes, a final verdict has officially been announced, and his new destination is now known. Indeed, the 26-year-old forward was not claimed on waivers and will therefore join the CH's farm team, the Laval Rocket, in the American League.

This is undoubtedly great news for Jean-François Houle's men, who can count on the return of their best attacker for the playoff race.

Before being called up by the Canadiens, Gignac led the team in scoring with an impressive tally of 14 goals and 28 assists (42 points) in 43 games.

Although his stay in the NHL was short-lived, the Repentigny native still had the opportunity to play seven games in the NHL, where he notably scored his first goal with the Montreal Canadiens.

We wish him the best of luck for the remainder of the 2023-2024 campaign!
