Alzner, 31, played four games for the Canadiens this season, posting a minus-one rating with zero points and four shots.
Alzner and his $4.625 million cap hit have been parked in Laval for most of the past two seasons, but he was recalled in February after Victor Mete suffered a broken foot. The Canadiens will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in their best-of-five play-in series. The roster also includes defense prospect Alexander Romanov, who is not yet under contract and is expected to sign his entry-level deal on Monday at noon, when the signing period opens.
