There is no current timetable for his return, leaving the Hurricanes in a tough spot.

The organization first decided to sign Jaroslav Halak to a PTO to solve their problems, but it seems like they've changed their minds and a trade could happen.

Two teams have three goalies within their roster: the Canadiens and the Red Wings. But with the Habs reportedly interested in trading a goaltender, it looks like they're poised to make a deal.

Montreal and Carolina to Put Their Differences Aside to Work on a Trade Involving a Goaltender?



Over the past five years, the Canadiens-Hurricanes' rivalry has taken a huge turn.

It started when former Habs' GM Marc Bergevin unsuccessfully tried to offer-sheet Sebastian Aho. Later, Don Waddell, the Canes' GM, made the same thing to Jesperi Kotkaniemi and it worked.

Since then, games between Montreal and Carolina are a lot more intense than they used to be.

But Pierre LeBrun believes they will put their differences aside to work on a trade.
