Byron (upper-body) will return to the Canadiens lineup on Monday.
Byron missed Saturday’s game in Toronto with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Wednesday. Byron, who has 12 goals and 11 assists (23 points) in 39 games will replace Daniel Carr vs. the Capitals.
The Canadiens have claimed Paul Byron off of waivers from Calgary.
Byron, 26, has been a nice depth piece for the Flames over the last few seasons, but after Zack Kassian was suspended indefinitely on Monday, the Habs claimed Byron from Calgary. Byron had six goals and 13 assists (19 points) in 57 games with the Flames last season.
The Flames have placed Paul Byron (lower-body) on IR.
Byron has missed the last two games and will likely miss a few more games after being moved to IR this afternoon. His movement to IR created a roster spot for the Flames to recall Michael Ferland from Adirondack (AHL).
There is no word on who will come out for the Flames but Byron is in. Byron has five goals and 13 assists in 23 games with Abbotsford (AHL) this season. Byron is a 24-year-old centre who was drafted 178th overall in 2007 and has spent the three seasons in the Flames system.
