The former Montreal Canadiens organization Jean-Sébastien Dea and Charles Hudon could not convince the Arizona Coyotes and the Colorado Avalanche respectively to offer them a position in the League National Hockey League (NHL) since their names were listed on waivers Thursday. 

Dea, who signed a two-year, two-way contract with the “Yotes” this summer , spent the entire last season with the Laval Rocket. Author of 52 points in 70 regular season games, he helped the CH school club reach the semi-finals of the American League playoffs.

Hudon has a valid agreement for the next campaign with the Avalanche . Upon his return to North America last year, after a season spent in Switzerland, the Almatois amassed 57 points in 66 games with the Syracuse Crunch.

The 28-year-old forward has 41 points in 125 games in the National League, all played in a Canadiens uniform.
