This outcome came the day after the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge’s decision to leave nine skaters unprotected. In Florida, the Panthers hired Shane Churla last November as the head of amateur recruiting, a position he held in Montreal for the previous four seasons.
Drafted by the Canadian 26th in the amateur auction in 2015, Juulsen has never been able to do justice due to injuries, especially to one eye. He collected three assists in 13 games with the Laval Rocket in 2019-2020.
Will Perry and Frolik be claimed?
Meanwhile, general manager Marc Bergevin has put veterans Corey Perry and Michael Frolik on waivers, so they could end up in another organization by Tuesday.
Both men attended training camp for the Habs after signing a one-year contract in recent weeks.
The Habs will visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, the inaugural day of the National League campaign.
