The Montreal Canadiens are already trimming down their training camp roster.

On Sunday the Habs announced that four players would be sent back to their respective junior teams, a pair of forwards and a pair of goaltenders.

The first player heading back will be will be former 4th round pick (127th overall) Cedrick Guindon, and in this case the 19 year old is expected to rejoin the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League and joining him on the way out will be the 19 year old former fourth round pick (101st overall) Florian Xhekaj who is expected to rejoin the Hamilton Bulldogs of the OHL.

As for the goalies heading back down is 18 year old Quentin Miller who will be going back to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and alongside him will be 19 year old Jan Spunar of the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks.

None of the players cut today were expected to make the team and it is far more likely that the Canadiens invited them to camp to give them a jump in their NHL development, while also getting a chance to evaluate the progress they have made over the course of the last several months.

There will be many more cuts before the start of the season, so stay tuned for more details.
