As Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports, the Montreal Canadiens have placed Mark Streit on waivers. If no other NHL team is interested in him, he will have to report to the Habs' AHL affiliate team, unless the two parties mutually agree to terminate their contract.

Yesterday, Sportsnet reported that the Canadiens are actively trying to trade Streit, after he appeared in only two out of four games since the start of the season, averaging a 14:33 time on ice per game and without scoring any points. The Habs signed the veteran to a one-year $700,000 contract in July this year (excluding bonuses).

After launching his NHL career in Montreal in 2005, Streit's second stint with the Canadiens thus winds up shorter than anticipated. Last term, he appeared in a total of 68 games for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins, recording six goals and 16 assists.
