Montreal Canadiens

Schlemko (hand) has been assigned to Laval (AHL) on a conditioning stint.

Schlemko has missed the first four games of the season with a hand injury that he suffered in the preseason. Schlemko will be a welcomed addition to the Canadiens’ blueline when he is healthy, but he’ll get at least one game in Laval before making his debut. Schlemko had two goals and 16 assists (18 points) in 62 games with San Jose last season.

The Canadiens have acquired David Schlemko from the Golden Knights for a 2019 5th round pick.

Schlemko, 30, was picked from the San Jose Sharks in Wednesday’s Expansion Draft and dealt to the Canadiens this afternoon. Schlemko is a steady second pairing defenseman who has 20-plus point upside, but hasn’t appeared in more than 67 games in a single year in his NHL career. He posted 18 points (2G / 16A) in 62 games with the Sharks last year and will replace Alexei Emelin on the Habs’ blueline after Emelin was also chosen by Vegas.
