Mark Streit may need to refer to the Rocket de Laval if no NHL team claims by Friday noon.
Experience Mark Streit has not proven successful for the Canadian so far, so well that the club had submitted the name of the defender of 39 years at the second balloting.
The other 30 teams in the national hockey League have until noon Friday to claim it. Otherwise the team will be able to sell to his club-school, the Rocket de Laval.
Used in two meetings this season, Streit has not managed to register on the score sheet and shows a differential defensive minus-2. Always useful in numerical advantage, it was more difficult for him to argue with equal strength.
Streit is in his 13th season in the circuit Bettman. One who has been a choice of the ninth round, 262nd overall by the Canadian in 2004 has also evolved to the New York Islanders, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins, where he won a first Stanley cup last season.
In 786 games he has scored 96 goals and added 338 aid for 434 points. On the international stage, he represented Switzerland at the world junior Championships, world Championships, world Cup and winter olympic Games.
He signed a one-year agreement, with a value of $ 700,000 US, with bonuses for performance up to $ 300,000 in July of last year.
The return-to-play, imminent, David Schlemko, whose name was inscribed on the injured list since the start of training camp because of an injury to a hand, is certainly no stranger to this decision taken by the management of the Habs.
Everything indicates that Schlemko will be in uniform for the game on Saturday as the Toronto Maple Leafs will be the visitors at the Bell Centre.
