Even though it still is wasting a call-up, perhaps they wanted to reward Palushaj for his play and give him a taste of NHL pace, physicality. In years past the Habs called up players like Desharnais, Trotter, Maxwell, Weber, White, Chipchura etc for a week or two just to let the players know that they are being watched, and to give them that experience.
Hopefully this move doesnt cost them down the road if there are more injury problems.
