Mark Streit has been placed on unconditional waivers and the next step will be to terminate his contract.

Streit appeared in just two games with the Canadiens this season. He cleared waivers on Friday and was sent to the minors, but he didn't report to the AHL because he wanted to consider his options. It's unclear what his plans are at this time.

Mark Streit won't report to AHL Laval.

Streit cleared waivers and was sent to the minors by Montreal. He's going to take a few days to consider his options. He might decide to simply hang up his skates or he could seek to have his contract mutually voided so that he can play in Europe. That might also open him up to being available for Team Switzerland for the 2018 Winter Games.

Mark Streit has been sent to the minors.

The move was expected as Streit successfully cleared waivers Friday afternoon, but it's been confirmed. He had a minus-two rating and averaged just 14:13 minutes of ice time in two games with the Canadiens.

Mark Streit went unclaimed on waivers.

That's not too surprising. Streit was once a great offensive defenseman, but at the age of 39, his career seems to be drawing to a close. Unfortunately, he may have played in his last NHL game.

Mark Streit has been placed on waivers by the Montreal Canadiens.

The Canadiens signed Streit to a one-year, $700,000 contract over the summer, but it hasn't worked out so far. He's dressed for just two of Montreal's four games. They were reportedly shopping him around, but it looks like they didn't get any offers. Perhaps he'll be claimed and it's still possible that a trade will happen, but unfortunately this could be the end of his NHL career.

The Montreal Canadiens are reportedly shopping defenseman Mark Streit.

Streit has suited up in two of Montreal's first four games, but it's clear that he can't keep up at the NHL level anymore. The veteran has no points and a minus-2 rating this season. It's unlikely that they'll be able to find a trade partner for him, so don't be surprised if he ends up on waivers at some point.

Mark Streit has signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Streit will reportedly earn $700,000. He suited up in 68 games with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh last season. Streit had 21 points in 49 appearances with the Flyers as well as six points in 19 outings with the Penguins. He could be in line to replace Andrei Markov as a veteran power-play option if the latter doesn't re-sign with the Canadiens.

It appears Mark Streit will not play in Game 3 against the Predators.

Mark Streit, Josh Archibald, Oskar Sundqvist, Cameron Gaunce, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Derrick Pouliot, Daniel Sprong, Dominik Simon, David Warsofsky, Frank Corrado, Kevin Porter, Garrett Wilson, Tom Sesito, Tristan Jarry, Sean Maguire will all watch from the press box tonight.

Mark Streit is expected to be a healthy scratch in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Streit played in his first game of the playoffs in Game 3 of the series. He had 15:30 of ice time in that. The Penguins pairings look like this in warmup: Brian Dumoulin and Ron Hainsey, Olli Maatta and Trevor Daley, and Ian Cole and Chad Ruhwedel.

Mark Streit will return to the Penguins' lineup for Game 3 Wednesday night.

Streit was regarded as a game-time decision. The Penguins are dressing seven blueliners and it looks like Streit is the one without a regular defensive partner. That being said, he might play a big role with the man advantage.

Mark Streit will be a game-time decision for Game 3 versus Ottawa on Wednesday night, according to coach Mike Sullivan.

Streit and Trevor Daley are listed as game-time calls, while Justin Schultz has been ruled out for the contest. It's being speculated that the Penguins could dress seven defensemen and 11 forwards. Streit was on the team's top power-play unit during the morning skate and might make his 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs debut.
Wed, May 17, 2017 12:45:00 PM

Mark Streit could see power-play time in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final versus Ottawa if he gets into the lineup.

"He can help us on our power play, he can help us get out of our end zone," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He's a real good puck mover, he's got great puck skills. That was one of the main reasons why we acquired him when we did. He's helped us win games here down the stretch. If Mark's the guy that we go to, we know he can continue to help us win." Streit might get to make his 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs debut if Justin Schultz and/or Trevor Daley aren't available to play Wednesday.
