The Stars have acquired Greg Pateryn and 2017 fourth round pick from the Canadiens for Jordie Benn.
Pateryn has only appeared in 24 games with the Canadiens this season and made it well-known that he was unhappy with his playing time. Unfortunately he heads to Dallas with their own clogged bluleline.
Pateryn was a healthy scratch in the first three games of the series, but with Nathan Beaulieu out for the rest of the series, Pateryn will get back into the lineup. He had no points and just 10 shots in 17 games with the Canadiens this season.
The Canadiens have recalled Greg Pateryn from Hamilton (AHL).
Pateryn, 24, has not registered a point in six games with the Habs this season, but in Hamilton he has collected 15 points (3G / 12A) in 53 games. He could get back into the Canadiens lineup on Saturday in New York.
Patyrn, who was recalled on Sunday, was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but will make his season debut tonight in Ottawa. The 24-year-old has two goals and 11 assists (13 points) in 49 games with Hamilton (AHL) this season.
