Bryan Allen has been placed on waivers by the Montreal Canadiens.

This comes less than two months after the Montreal Canadiens acquired Allen from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Rene Bourque. Allen comes with a cap hit of $3.5 million and is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Given his cap hit, it seems unlikely that another team claim him despite Allen's 721 games worth of NHL experience.

Bryan Allen (flu) has been activated off the injured list, but he will not play Monday against the Hurricanes.

He is expected to be a healthy scratch. There is just simply no room for Allen with the fine work of Nathan Beaulieu, who has now been elevated to the Habs' second defense pairing. If you were looking for Allen to supply you with some penalty minutes, we suggest you make an alternate plan.

Bryan Allen and Mike Weaver will not play against the Senators on Saturday night.

Though neither has much fantasy value, Mike Weaver can be useful in a pinch as he's blocked 52 shots in his 26 games.

Bryan Allen (flu) is available to play when needed.

He's still on the Canadiens' injured reserve list, but he's been cleared to return to action. Allen has been out of the lineup since Dec. 3.

Bryan Allen (flu) took part in Monday's practice.

However, he skated on Montreal's fourth defense pairing, so he's unlikely to play on Tuesday even if he's fully recovered from the flu. That means that Nathan Beaulieu will probably stay in the lineup.

Bryan Allen didn't skate Monday because of the flu.

It's unclear if he'll be available to play on Tuesday night at this time. Just an FYI as Allen doesn't have any fantasy value.

Bryan Allen and Drayson Bowman will again be healthy scratches on Saturday night in Dallas.

Though Montreal fell to Chicago on Friday night, it doesn't appear that Coach Therrien wants to make any defensive changes just yet.

Bryan Allen and Drayson Bowman will be healthy scratches in Chicago on Friday night.

Montreal may be within three points from the top of the NHL standings table, but Coach Therrien is still looking for his preferred top-six defensemen.

Bryan Allen on the ice for the Montreal Canadiens Wednesday versus the Minnesota Wild.

It will be Allen's turn on defense for Montreal instead of Mike Weaver. Allen has produced a lone assist in just six games this season but he will try to jump start his season on Wednesday night. Mike Weaver will be missing his third game of the year.

Bryan Allen made his Canadiens' debut on Saturday night against the Boston Bruins.

Allen played 14:30 in the game. The 34-year-old was acquired earlier this week from Anaheim for Rene Bourque. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Bryan Allen will make his Montreal Canadiens debut on Saturday after being traded from the Anaheim Ducks.

The 34-year-old is most useful for penalty minutes. In 716 career regular season games, Allen has 29 goals, 135 points and 837 PIM. Allen had 75 PIM in 68 games last season.

Bryan Allen, who was acquired in a trade with Anaheim on Thursday, is available for action Saturday night against Boston.

That doesn't mean Allen will suit up, though. Mike Weaver returned to action from injury Thursday so the Habs have plenty of choices for their game-day roster. If Allen does get into the contest, you can expect the usual from him---no points and some PIMs.

Bryan Allen has been traded to Montreal in exchange for Rene Bourque.

In six games with the Anaheim Ducks this season, Allen has one assist, 11 blocks and 10 hits. He missed the first 14 games of the year because of a lower-body injury.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 05:36:00 PM

The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Bryan Allen from the minors.

Allen was on a conditioning assignment so his return was anticipated as he was recovering from a lower body injury. He was a healthy scratch.
