MONTREAL – The Canadiens announced on Sunday that they’ve placed forward Kenny Agostino on waivers.
After being recalled from the AHL’s Laval Rocket in early November, the 26-year-old forward appeared in 36 games for the Habs, scoring a pair of goals and collecting 11 points.
He also suited up for 12 games with the Rocket this season, registering four goals and 10 points.
A native of Morristown, NJ, Agostino boasts 58 games of NHL experience with the Calgary Flames, St. Louis Blues, Boston Bruins and the Canadiens.
A fifth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2010, Agostino signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Habs last summer.
For his part, veteran defenseman Karl Alzner was assigned to the Rocket on Sunday after clearing waivers.
