The Winnipeg Jets are either confused or sneakily strategic.
A day after making a trade with the Montreal Canadiens to acquire goaltender Peter Budaj, they placed him on waivers.
When Budaj was acquired, it was thought he would be the backup behind starter Ondrej Pavelec. Michael Hutchinson, the projected backup, struggled throughout the preseason and also only has three games of...
MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens have traded goaltender Peter Budaj to the Winnipeg Jets for forward Eric Tangradi.
By dealing Budaj, the Canadiens opted to keep Dustin Tokarski as Carey Price’s backup after the 25-year-old played well in last year’s Eastern Conference final against the New York Rangers.
Tokarski would have had to go on waivers if the Habs didn’t keep him...

Peter Budaj is going to have nightmares about this one.
With his team locked in a 2-2 tie with the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime, the Canadiens goaltender committed the ultimate mistake by actually tapping the puck into his own net to hand the Blackhawks a 3-2 victory.
The trouble began for Budaj when Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith found forward Patrick Sharp open in front...
Montreal Canadiens goalie Peter Budaj was certainly kicking himself after the Habs loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. They were tied 2-2 in overtime when Budaj mishandled Patrick Sharp’s shot and then knocked the rebound into his own net. Nothing like an own-goal to cost your team the game.

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Francis Bouillion cranked a nice one-timer to put the Florida Panthers on the board Sunday, ending teammate Peter Budaj’s shutout. There’s absolutely no reason Budaj should have been expecting Bouillion to shoot the puck on net, but that’s just what he did. Bouillion had just scored his first goal of the season (for his own team) in the second...
RIGHT ON THE TAPE
Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj must have been in a giving mood Wednesday as he donated to Vinny Lecavalier’s goal scoring fund. Lecavalier misplayed a pass from a teammate along the right wing and the puck slid into the Canadiens’ zone. Budaj skated out to the left face-off circle to play it and play it he did. He served the puck up on a silver platter like a waitress...
