Flynn was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the season, but will replace Daniel Carr in the lineup on Tuesday. Flynn had 10 points (4G / 6A) in 56 games with the Canadiens last season. Flynn will skate on the fourth line with Torey Mitchell and Philip Danault.
The Canadiens have acquired Brian Flynn from the Sabres for a 2016 5th round pick.
Flynn, 26, is a hard working forward who can play centre or wing. He was played huge minutes with Buffalo, but will play a bottom-6 role in Montreal. He has five goals and 12 assists (17 points) in 54 games. Flynn is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
