The Montreal Canadiens will place Keith Kinkaid on waivers today according to multiple reports. Eric Engels was the first to report and has since been confirmed by TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

The goaltender made five starts for the Canadiens, going 1-1-3 with a 4.24 goals against average and a .874 save percentage. He was not on the ice for the team’s practice today.

It became clear that he did not have the confidence of Claude Julien, who only played him in back-to-back situations. His last start was Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers.

  Canadiens Game Day: Habs needed a win, but end up with an overtime loss This was a game the Canadiens really needed to win. Not as badly as the Toronto Maple Leafs needed to win Tuesday night. The Leafs’ winless streak hit six games (0-5-1) with their 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Las Vegas and head coach Mike Babcock was fired on Wednesday. You knew how badly the Canadiens wanted to beat the Ottawa Senators Wednesday night at the Bell Centre when coach Claude Julien decided to start goalie Carey Price in back-to-back games for the first time this season. But the Canadiens are now winless in their last three games (0-2-1) following a 2-1 overtime loss to the Senators.

Kinkaid was signed to a one year contract this summer. If he gets assigned to Laval, the Canadiens will save $1.075 million on the salary cap. The team will remain responsible for $675,000.

This likely means that Charlie Lindgren will get recalled unless another move is coming. It remains to be seen what this means for Michael McNiven, who is currently assigned to the Jacksonville Icemen of the ECHL.

There are teams looking for goaltending help, and given the lack of goaltenders on waivers, it is possible Kinkaid gets claimed.

Canadiens Game Day: Canadiens call up goalie Charlie Lindgren .
The Canadiens announced Saturday morning that they have called up goalie Charlie Lindgren from the AHL’s Laval Rocket and sent down Cayden Primeau. Lindgren will be Carey Price’s backup for Saturday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., SNE, SN360, CITY, TVA Sports, TSN 690 Radio) and will also be on the Canadiens’ Western Canada road trip next week. Primeau will be in goal for the Rocket for a 3 p.m. game Saturday against the Rochester Americans at Place Bell and will remain in Laval.
