  • Simon Despres: Headed back to Europe

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/19) Despres agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Kolner Haie (DEL) and will return to Europe, where he spent the 2017-18 campaign.

    After failing to earn a contract with the Habs during training camp. Despres signed a minor-league deal with AHL Laval, but will make the move to Germany for the rest of the season. The 27-year-old played in just five games for the Rocket in which he tallied two points, four PIM and a minus-2 rating. At this point, Despres has probably logged his last NHL game, having logged 193 outings and 43 points in stints with the Penguins and Ducks.

    Canadiens' Simon Despres: Offered minor-league deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/18) Despres has been offered an AHL contract by the Montreal organization.

    While it's better than no contract, a minor-league-only deal would not allow Despres to be called up during the season -- although the team could still sign and promote him down the road -- which is likely why the defender is looking into his options. Invited to camp on a tryout, it is a little surprising to see the team not pursue at least a two-way deal for the veteran considering it will be without Shea Weber (knee) and David Schlemko (knee) for Opening Night and beyond.

    Canadiens' Simon Despres: Likely headed to Laval

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/18) The Canadiens are expected to sign Despres and send him to AHL Laval, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Despres was in Montreal's camp on a professional tryout and apparently did enough to warrant continued interest. He had been a top-four blueliner for Anaheim before suffering a concussion one game into the 2016-17 season. He skated for Bratislava Slovan of the KHL last year.

    Canadiens' Simon Despres: Signs PTO

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/12/18) Despres will link up with the Canadiens on a professional tryout agreement for training camp.

    After logging just one game in 2016-17 while with the Ducks due to a concussion, Despres went over to the KHL last year. While with Bratislava Slovan, the blueliner notched 11 points in 44 games, along with a concerning minus-13 rating. With Shea Weber (knee) out long term, the Habs are probably trying to see what Despres has left in the tank. If there is even a glimmer of his former talent, they will likely keep him around to help shore up the lineup.

    Simon Despres: Heading overseas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/24/17) Despres agreed to terms on a one-year contract with HC Slovan Bratislava of the KHL on Thursday.

    Despres appeared in just one contest all of last season after suffering a concussion. One has to wonder whether NHL clubs were hesitant to give him a look due to concerns over his history of head injuries. In any case, the blueliner will head to Europe for the first time in his six-year professional career.
