Former Wallaceburg Lakers defenseman Brad Staubitz was claimed off waivers yesterday by the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens.

Staubitz, who played for Wallaceburg Lakers in 2000-2001, was claimed by Montreal after being assigned by the Minnesota Wild to the AHL. Staubitz’s 2000-2001 Lakers were eliminated by the Belle River Canadiens 4-0 in the Great Lakes Junior C Final.

Staubitz has played 43 games with the NHL’s Minnesota Wild this season, failing to register a point. In 196 career NHL games with the San Jose Sharks and Minnesota Wild, Staubitz has collected 8 goals and 10 assists, along with 473 penalty minutes.

Known more for his quick feet and offensive ability in minor hockey and junior as a defenseman, Staubitz was converted to an enforcer who plays the wing at the professional level.

The Montreal Canadiens currently sit last in the Eastern Conference.
