MONTREAL, QUE. – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs general manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have assigned defenceman Greg Pateryn to the Bulldogs.

Pateryn has split this season between the Canadiens and Bulldogs. In six games with Montreal, he has recorded two penalty minutes. In 49 games with Hamilton, he has recorded 13 points (two goals, 11 assists) and 56 penalty minutes.

In nine career National Hockey League regular season games with the Canadiens, the 6-2, 222-pound defenceman has recorded no points and two penalty minutes. In 156 career American Hockey League regular season games with the Bulldogs, the Sterling Heights, Mich. native has recorded 59 points (24 goals, 35 assists) and 150 penalty minutes.

The 24-year-old was originally selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the fifth round (128th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by the Canadiens from the Maple Leafs along with a second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Mikhail Grabovski on July 3, 2008.

The Bulldogs will be back in action on Wednesday, March 4 when they’ll host the Adirondack Flames at FirstOntario Centre at 7:30 p.m.
