The National Hockey League's trade deadline for the 2023-24 season has come and gone, but minor deals may still trickle in over the next few days. This Friday is the American Hockey League's trade deadline, so things could get busy once again as teams look to bolster their rosters ahead of a push towards the Calder Cup.

On Monday, the Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils came together to complete a trade that will benefit their AHL clubs - the Laval Rocket and Utica Comets.

In a post on X, the Canadiens announced that they've acquired forward Arnaud Durandeau in exchange for forward Nathan Legare.

"Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes announced on Monday that the team has acquired forward Arnaud Durandeau from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for forward Nathan Legare." The Canadiens said.



Durandeau, 25, has appeared in 38 AHL games this season between the Bridgeport Islanders and Utica Comets where he's put up 18 points (four goals, 14 assists), 31 penalty minutes and is a minus-seven.

Legare, 23, was acquired by the Canadiens last summer as part of the Erik Karlsson deal between the Penguins and Sharks. In 39 games for the Laval Rocket this season, the Montreal native has nine points (six goals, three assists), 42 penalty minutes and is a minus-ten.
