The Montreal Canadiens will have a "Geoffrion" in their lineup once again. Blake Geoffrion, the grandson of Habs legend Bernie (Boom-Boom) Geoffrion, is on his way to Montreal from Nashville along with a second-round draft pick for defenceman Hal Gill and a conditional fifth-round pick.

The Habs also added minor-leaguer Robert Slaney in the trade.

The 23-year-old Geoffrion appeared in 22 games for Nashville this season and had three assists.

Gill is due to become an unrestricted free agent in the summer and was in high demand.

The six-foot-seven defenceman had spent parts of the past two-plus seasons in Montreal and previously won a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009.

Blake Geoffrion is also Howie Morenz's great-grandson. Pretty impressive blood lines.

Brelic.---When Canadiens broke up the pairing with Subban and Gill, I think Gill was made expendable.
