Veteran Habs D-man heads Streit to waivers

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS -

Veteran Mark Streit is the odd man out in the Montreal Cana­di­ens’ on­go­ing blue-line shuf­fle. The Cana­di­ens placed the 39-year-old on waivers Thurs­day, three months af­ter sign­ing him to a one-year, US$700,000 con­tract. Streit won a Stan­ley Cup with Pitts­burgh last sea­son. The Cana­di­ens signed Streit in free agency to re­stock their de­pleted group of de­fence­man. An­drei Markov left to play in his na­tive Rus­sia, Alexei Emelin was claimed in the ex­pan­sion draft and Nathan Beaulieu was traded to Buf­falo. Streit had no points in play­ing Montreal’s first two games be­fore be­ing benched the next two in favour of Brandon David­son.
