Canadiens Waive Mark Streit


The Montreal Canadiens have placed defensiveman Mark Streit on waivers, according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

Streit, 39, signed with the Canadiens  after splitting last season between the Philadelphia Flyers and Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins but has struggled thus far.

Montreal chose to waive him after unsuccessfully trying to trade him yesterday.
