According to several media outlets, the Montreal Canadiens will use their second and final compliance buyout on defenceman Tomas Kaberle.
The Canadiens have reportedly already informed the 35-year-old of their intentions, but the buyout period doesn’t start until 48 hours after the Stanley Cup is awarded.
The native of Rakovnik, Czech Republic was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes during the 2011-12 season in exchange for Jaroslav Spacek.
Kaberle has one-year left on his current deal that pays the veteran defenceman $4.5-million and carries a cap hit of $4.25-million.
In 10 games with the Canadiens this season, Kaberle recorded three assists.
Montreal used their first compliance buyout before the start of the 2013 season on centre Scott Gomez.
