On the final day of training camp, a flurry of moves by the Canadiens. Most notably, they claimed faceoff and penalty killing speciallist Blair Betts from the Philadelphia Flyers. That acquisition meant Andreas Engqvist, who had seemingly inherited that job was assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs. Earlier in the day forwards Aaron Palushaj and Michael Blunden were sent to the Bulldogs along with Ian Schultz. The Canadiens also asked waivers on defenseman Jeff Woywitka.

The Canadiens placed forward Michael Blunden on waivers today bringing their training camp roster down to twenty-four. The 6 foot 4 inch Blunden led the team in training camp hits with 17 in the four games in which the statistic was kept. If he clears waivers, he will be assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs training camp. An in-depth look at the Canadiens roster follows.
The Canadiens have acquired two minor leaguer forwards on through free agency and the other through a trade. Forward Michael Blunden comes to Montreal in return for Hamilton forward Ryan Russell who was a restricted free agent while Brian Willsie has signed a two-year two-way contract after becoming an unrestricted free agent with the Washington Capitals.
