We saw this coming.
In the wake of the injury to Mike Cammalleri, the Canadiens have called Aaron Palushaj up from the Hamilton Bulldogs.
No defenceman has been called up, which probably means Jaroslav Spacek will be available for the home opener on Thursday.
The team announcement:
The Montreal Canadiens announced today that forward Aaron Palushaj has
been recalled from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.
Assigned to the Bulldogs on October 5, the 22-year old forward registered two assists (0-2-2) in the Bulldogs’ 5-2 victory in their season opener against Rochester on October 8 in Hamilton.
Palushaj registered four points (1-3-4) in five preseason games with the Canadiens.
