Former Badger Geoffrion Traded

MONTREAL (AP) -- The Montreal Canadiens will have a "Geoffrion" in their lineup again.

Blake Geoffrion, the grandson of Canadiens legend Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion, is on his way to Montreal from Nashville along with a second-round draft pick for defenseman Hal Gill and a conditional fifth-round pick.

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

Gill, an unrestricted free agent in the summer, had spent parts of the past two-plus seasons in Montreal and previously won a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009.

Montreal also added minor-league player Robert Slaney in the trade.
