From Herb Zurkowsky:
The Canadiens were eliminated on Monday by Philadelphia, but the hockey season isn’t over for two of their players.
As expected, the organization announced on Tuesday forward Ben Maxwell and
defenceman P.K. Subban have been assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs of
the American Hockey League. Both will join the Bulldogs for Game 7 of
the AHL Western Conference final, against Texas, Wednesday night at
Promoted from the farm team on April 26, Subban played
in 14 playoff games for Montreal, scoring a goal and seven assists. He
was third in Bulldogs’ scoring this season, with 18 goals and 53 points
in 77 games.
Maxwell was used sparingly by the Canadiens during
their post-season run, dressing for only one game, against Pittsburgh.
He failed to register a point. He also played 13 regular-season games
for Montreal, again being held pointless.
In 57 games with Hamilton, Maxwell scored 16 goals and 28 assists.

facility this afternoon. Head cCoach Jacques Martin meets the media at
4:30, followed by general manager Pierre Gauthier 30 minutes later.
