Canadiens claim forward Adam Brooks from Maple Leafs


After a long list of players were placed on waivers Sunday as NHL rosters get finalized, several teams made claims on Monday, including the Montreal Canadiens adding Adam Brooks from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Brooks, 25, spent last season split between the Maple Leafs and the AHL’s Marlies, and recorded five points in 11 NHL appearances. He’s on the final season of a two-year, $1.45-million deal he signed with Toronto last off-season.

The Seattle Kraken also added to their roster by claiming Alex Barré-Boulet off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 24-year-old Montmagny, Que., native played in 15 games with the Lightning last season, registering three goals. He’s built an impressive resume with the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch, where he’s accumulated 136 points in 144 games over the last three seasons.

In other news, the New York Islanders have placed 2014 fifth-overall pick Michael Dal Colle on waivers. In 111 career NHL games over four seasons, Dal Colle has produced only 21 points. The 25-year-old from Woodbridge, Ont., dominated for several seasons in the OHL with the Oshawa Generals and Kingston Frontenacs, and has played in parts of four seasons with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Full list of Monday’s waiver claims:

Montreal Canadiens: Adam Brooks (from Toronto)

Philadelphia Flyers: Patrick Brown (from Vegas)

Seattle Kraken: Alex Barré-Boulet (from Tampa Bay)
