Top 15 Players You Forgot Recently Played For The Montreal Canadiens


Michael Cammalleri played for Los Angeles and Calgary before joining Montreal in 2009.


This left winger played a total of 170 regular season games with the Canadiens between the 2009-10 and 2011-12 seasons and recorded 119 points (54 goals, 65 assists). He was definitely an asset to have on the power play with 42 of his points (including 12 goals) earned while on the man advantage.


However, rumours started swirling that he was going to be traded. And on January 12, 2012, during a matchup against the Boston Bruins, Cammalleri was traded mid-game. He, along with Karri Ramo and a fifth round draft pick, were sent to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Rene Bourque, Patrick Holland and a second round draft pick.


Cammalleri is now currently a member of the New Jersey Devils.



After spending the first 15 seasons of his NHL career between the Phoenix Coyotes (now called the Arizona Coyotes), Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers, Daniel Briere made his way to the Montreal Canadiens in 2013 when he signed a two-year contract with them.


This center played 69 regular season games with the Habs in 2013-14 and tallied 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) including 6 of his points recorded on the power play (4 of them were goals). He was pretty decent in the faceoff circle as well, with a 48.9% win percentage.


In June 2014, the Canadiens traded him to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for P.A. Parenteau and a fifth round draft pick. After playing one season with the Avalanche, Briere retired in 2015.
