It's unclear on the wording whether he's on there today, or already cleared, but
per Renaud Lavoie
Canadiens put Alexander Avstin on waivers and release him. #RDS
I thought this might be coming up as he played in the KHL as an 18-year-old but consistently saw his stats and status reduced with Montreal's AHL team (from 20 points in 58 games to 14 in 63 last year and only 15 games in the AHL this year along with a demotion to the AHL). I remember a couple years back, Canadiens fans were trumpeting him as a steal. It just goes to show you that you can never bank on a player until he's an everyday NHL player.
