Tomas Kaberle has officially agreed to a tryout agreement with the New Jersey Devils.

It was previously believed that Kaberle would participate in the Devils' training camp, but now we have final confirmation. Kaberle is looking to return to the NHL after scoring four goals and 24 points in 48 Czech league games in 2013-14.
Sep 9 - 6:07 PM

New Jersey has been in talks with Tomas Kaberle about attending training camp on a tryout basis.

"He has talked to us about a tryout," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said. "That has not been officially confirmed yet, but he has talked to us." The Devils want to give Jonathon Merrill, Adam Larsson and Eric Gelinas a chance to play this season, but Kaberle could be used as insurance at camp and serve as a veteran presence.

Tomas Kaberle hopes to return to the NHL this season.

He's working at the BioSteel Camp and could attend a team's training camp on a tryout basis. Kaberle played with HC Kladno in the Czech League last year, where he had 24 points in 48 games.

Tomas Kaberle is close to signing with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL, according to reports from the Czech Republic.

He became an unrestricted free agent on July 5 after his contract was bought out by the Montreal Canadiens. Kaberle suited up in just 10 games with Montreal last season.

The Montreal Canadiens have officially bought out Tomas Kaberle.

Montreal was able to finalize the compliance buyout after Kaberle successfully cleared waivers. The move will save the Canadiens $4.25 million in cap space for the 2013-14 campaign.

Tomas Kaberle has successfully cleared unconditional waivers.

With that done, the Montreal Canadiens are free to use a compliance buyout on Kaberle. He would have come with a $4.25 million cap hit in 2013-14.

Tomas Kaberle has been waived by Montreal.

Assuming he isn't claimed, he is expected to be bought out by the Canadiens. Kaberle mostly served as an extra defenseman in 2013, while dressing in just 10 games with the Habs.
Thu, Jun 27, 2013 12:16:00 PM

Tomas Kaberle has reportedly been told by the Montreal Canadiens that he will be bought out.

Kaberle was expected to be let go by the Canadiens after he appeared in just 10 games during the lockout-shortened season. He has one year and $4.5 million left on his current contract.

Tomas Kaberle will not be sent down to the AHL if he's not claimed on waivers, according to RDS' Renaud Lavoie.

We'll know Sunday, but the chances of him being claimed are miniscule as he's still owed a pro-rated $4.25 million this year and the same amount next season. He's a prime buyout candidate once the season ends.

Tomas Kaberle has been waived by the Montreal Canadiens.

Kaberle's cap hit is $4,250,000 through the 2013-14 campaign, so there's no way that he gets claimed. Maybe the Canadiens can trade him under the right circumstances - for example, if they take back a bad contract - but he's more likely to be bought out after the season's over. Kaberle has no fantasy value.

Tomas Kaberle will spend Thursday's game in the press box.

Kaberle has three points in just 10 games this season. This isn't the first time he's been a healthy scratch and probably won't be the last time. Consequently, it wouldn't be surprising if Montreal buys out the final campaign of his three-year/$12.75 million contract over the summer.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 05:51:00 PM

Tomas Kaberle was a healthy scratch in the Canadiens' 6-0 loss to the Leafs Saturday night.

The defenseman, who carries a $4.25 million cap hit, will probably be one of Montreal's compliance buyouts next offseason. In the meantime, he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar, especially with the recent P.K. Subban signing.

Tomas Kaberle returned to action on Tuesday after he sat out Sunday's game with a facial injury.

He took a puck to the face at practice and didn't play on that night. In his return to the lineup on Tuesday, Kaberle posted a plus-2 rating and two shots during his 12:13 of ice time.
Wed, Jan 30, 2013 02:10:00 AM

The signing of P.K. Subban probably won't be good news for Tomas Kaberle.

Kaberle has no points and four shots in three games this season and the strong play of Raphael Diaz may keep him out of the team's top-six group. The Canadiens also have Andrei Markov, Alexei Emelin and Josh Gorges and Francis Bouillon in the fold. Kaberle is currently day-to-day with a facial injury, but his lineup spot appears to be in jeopardy.
