by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile was sent down to AHL Laval on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

Belzile spent a week on the taxi squad, but he's a long-shot to see any NHL playing time this year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile was assigned to the taxi squad Sunday, per CBS Sports.

A career minor leaguer, Belzile appeared in six postseason contests with Montreal last year but has yet to suit up for a regular-season game. The 29-year-old forward tallied 14 points with AHL Laval last season.

Belzile cleared waivers Monday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Belzile now becomes eligible for Montreal's taxi squad but will likely be assigned to AHL Laval.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Exposed to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens placed Belzile on waivers Sunday, Matt Cudzinowski of the Canadiens' official site reports.

With the transaction, Belzile becomes a candidate for Montreal's taxi squad if he goes unclaimed. The 25-year-old forward, who has yet to play a game in the NHL, had seven goals and seven assists over 20 games for AHL Laval in 2019-20.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Drawing in Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile (head) is expected to make his NHL debut Friday in Game 4 against the Penguins, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Belzile, who has spent the entirety of the past three campaigns in the AHL, is expected to replace the injured Jake Evans (undisclosed) on Montreal's fourth line. The 28-year-old forward picked up 14 points in 20 minor-league appearances during the regular season.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile (head) will remain out of the lineup against the Penguins on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Even if fully fit, Belzile was unlikely to ever get into a postseason game, so his absence figure to go unnoticed by fantasy players. The winger notched 14 points in 20 games for AHL Laval and should probably be considered a long shot to make the 23-man roster for Opening Night of the 2020-21 campaign.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Out for Game 1 on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile (head) will not suit up for Saturday's Game 1 tilt with the Penguins.

Belzile suffered an injury during an exhibition game earlier this week and is still trying to shake it off. It's unclear when the 28-year-old forward is expected to return, so he's still questionable for Monday's game against Pittsburgh.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Won't return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile won't return to Tuesday's exhibition game against the Maple Leafs with an apparent head injury.

The 28-year-old took a big hit from Jake Muzzin after a scoring opportunity, and he appeared to hit his head hard on the boards. Belzile should be considered questionable for Game 1 on Saturday against the Penguins.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Inks two-way deal with Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canadiens on Friday.

Belzile has appeared in 20 games with AHL Laval this season, notching seven goals and 14 points over that span. The 28-year-old forward will once again spend the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors.

Canadiens' Alex Belzile: Leads Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belzile has two goals, an assist and seven shots over the first two games at AHL Laval.

Belzile picked up where he left off in 2018-19, when he led the Rocket in goals (19) and assists (35). At 28 years old, the forward provides organizational depth for the Canadiens, but he could get on the short list of players to be considered for a promotion.
