BROSSARD, Que. — The Montreal Canadiens assigned forwards Charles Hudon and Sven Andrighetto to the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League on Monday in the first of a series of moves to get down to the NHL roster limit of 23 players.

Goalie Dustin Tokarski and defenceman Mark Barberio were not at practice and we also expected to be sent down.

Forward Zack Kassian, injured in an automobile accident Sunday morning, missed practice.

General manager Marc Bergevin is to speak to the media later Monday.
