According to RDS, the Montreal Canadiens have made their first foray into the trade-deadline frenzy by shipping prospect Ben Maxwell out of town.
There is no word yet as to which team has picked him up or what the return is.
In 49 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs this season, Maxwell has 40 points (11 goals, 29 assists) and a minus-2 rating.
Trading Maxwell was a logical move given the logjam at center with Tomas Plekanec, Scott Gomez, David Desharnais, Lars Eller and Jeff Halpern.
