Forward Dale Weise will not be back with the Montreal Canadiens, who will test the free agent market on October 9.
This is what TVA Sports journalist Renaud Lavoie said on Friday on his Twitter account.
Weise is reportedly looking for a new opportunity in the National Hockey League and not eyeing Europe, as some rumors implied.
In 2019-2020, Weise played 23 games with the Habs in the regular season, recording one goal and four assists for five points. He was also cleared from the scoresheet in five playoff games.
Weise was on his second stint in the Canadiens organization. In February 2019, he was acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers along with Christian Folin and in return by Byron Froese and David Schlemko.
The right winger also played 27 games with the Laval Rocket in the American League.
The one who also wore the uniforms of the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks had played three seasons with the CH between 2014 and 2016. He had left the organization for the first time in the transaction that had brought Phillip Danault to Montreal.
