The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Nate Thompson to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round pick, the team announced Monday.

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced the deal on Sunday night, just one day before the National Hockey League trade deadline.

MacLellan confirmed that Kovalchuk will indeed start on the right side of the third line, likely alongside left wing Carl Hagelin and center Lars Eller. I have nothing but great things to say. "He's an established player". The Bruins selected him in the sixth round (183rd overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft. The forward signed a one-year contract with the Canadiens after being placed on waivers by the Kings.

"Just to say that I've got to play for the Montreal Canadiens in my lifetime, that's right there a feather in my cap", Thompson said.

"It's bittersweet", Thompson said. It was great. Great group of guys, great organization.

The veteran did not rule out the possibility of returning to Montreal as a free agent on July 1.

Ilya Kovalchuk says Marc Bergevin gave him options as to where he could go and that Bergevin had better offers for him from other teams. "He asked me actually, and I said Washington would be good".

However, it's not his scoring but his depth and veteran leadership that he will bring to a team that was struggling to get a win and two points prior to beating its arch rivals, the Penguins, Sunday afternoon 5-to-3.

Farabee, 19, has played 49 games for Philadelphia this season, registering seven goals and 13 assists.
