Boyd skated in 10 games with the Canadiens and in 47 contests with their AHL affiliate in Hamilton this past season. He would not have had any fantasy value if he played in the NHL in 2011-12 anyway. Wed, Jun 1, 2011 08:59:00 AM

The Montreal Canadiens have sent Dustin Boyd to Hamilton of the AHL.

Boyd has cleared waivers twice this season, most recently on Wednesday. He has no fantasy value and may not return to the NHL this season as he will have to clear waivers again and Montreal would be responsible for half his salary that would go against the cap.

Dustin Boyd scored one goal in his debut for the Canadiens in a 3-2 loss to Toronto Thursday night.

A couple of new additions contributed to the Canadiens’ offense in the loss, with Boyd and Jeff Halpern scoring the Montreal goals. While the 24-year old Boyd is still crafting his game at the NHL level on the fourth line with the Canadiens, Halpern will be relied on as the number-three center for Montreal, with Max Lapierre moving over to the wing. Lapierre and Benoit Pouliot each registered one assist.

Dustin Boyd, whose rights were traded to Montreal along with Pekka Rinne for Sergei Kostitsyn on Wednesday, signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Habs.

Boyd played in 78 games with the Predators and Calgary Flames in 2009-10 and scored 11 goals and registered 24 points. He will likely play on Montreal's third line and as a result has little fantasy value.

The Nashville Predators did not tender an offer to Dustin Boyd, but he still could be back with the team next year.

"We've talked to Boyd's agent a couple of times, and we've also talked to a couple clubs about a possible deal," GM David Poile said. "We can still sign him between now and July 1 or we could trade him. There's an outside chance that one of those two could happen." If a deal cannot be reached, Boyd will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

The Predators are not sure if they want to extend a qualifying offer to Dustin Boyd.

"To me, it's a little bit of a factor to who we have signed, what positions we have, what other guys we have in the organization," said GM David. "So if I have a position for him, we'll be qualifying him. If I don't, we won't." Boyd appeared in 18 games with Nashville after being acquired from Calgary. He will become an unrestricted free agent if the Predators choose not to give him a qualifying offer by June 27.
