Keith Kinkaid will try to rediscover his game in the minors.

The Montreal Canadiens have assigned the veteran goaltender to their AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket. Kinkaid went unclaimed on waivers before Tuesday's deadline.

Montreal placed him on the wire Monday. Afterward, Canadiens head coach Claude Julien said this would give Kinkaid the opportunity to play more often and "hopefully get his game back in sync."

The 30-year-old backup has an .875 save percentage and just one win in six NHL games this season.

On July 1, Montreal signed Kinkaid to a one-year, $1.75-million contract.

The Canadiens recalled their top goaltending prospect, Cayden Primeau, from Laval on Monday.
