MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens rookie hopefuls Max Pacioretty and Yannick Weber survived another round of cuts Wednesday night as the club sent forwards Ben Maxwell, Gregory Stewart and Matt D'Agostini to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.
That leaves 30 players in Canadiens training camp, which shifts to the ski resort town of Mont-Tremblant, Que., for Thursday and Friday before the Habs play their final pre-season game Saturday night at home against the Minnesota Wild.
D'Agostini scored two goals in four pre-season games, while Maxwell had one goal in four games and Stewart managed an assist in five games with 11 penalty minutes.
Aside from Pacioretty and Weber, the other players remaining in camp who did not finish last season in the NHL are centre Kyle Chipchura, goalie Marc Denis, and defencemen Alex Henry and Mathieu Carle, who is injured with a concussion.
