Scrivens signed a one-year contract with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL on Friday, TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens appeared in 15 games with the Canadiens last season, posting a 5-8-0 record with an ugly 3.07 GAA and .906 save percentage over that span. The 29-year-old backstop will hope to perform at a higher level against slightly lesser competition in the KHL, and may have played his last NHL contest.

Scrivens went unclaimed off of waivers Thursday and has been assigned to AHL St. John's, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens was the odd-man out when Montreal signed Charlie Lindgren. The 29-year-old spent ten games with AHL Bakersfield earlier in the 2015-16 campaign in which he posted a disappointing 2-6-1 record with a .893 save percentage. With the organization clearly looking to Lindgren as their future, the netminder could be looking for a new home next season.

Scrivens was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

EDGE Analysis

The former Cornell standout has struggled at both the NHL and AHL levels, but has logged 15 games with the Habs this season, holding a 3.07 GAA and a .906 save percentage. If he clears waivers, he'll likely head to AHL St. John's for the duration of the season.

Scrivens relieved Mike Condon in Saturday night's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. He entered the game to start the third period and stopped all four shots faced.

EDGE Analysis

Condon was chased after giving up five goals on 14 shots. Undoubtedly, the Canadiens have missed Carey Price this season, but their pop-gun offense makes it difficult for any goalie less than a Vezina-caliber backstop. Defensively, their middle of the pack in shots against and blocked shots, so they do a reasonable job of eliminating how much a goalie has to do, but neither Condon nor Scrivens have been a reasonable replacement for Price.

Scrivens gave up four goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Montreal's ninth-worst defense was on display Thursday, leaving Scrivens out to dry as Detroit rained 21 shots on goal in the second period alone. The netminder has given up nine total tallies in his last two appearances, but the 29-year-old amassed 75 saves in that span, which shows he's capable of turning away attempts. However, whether it's Scrivens or any other netminder between the pipes, the Canadien defense is a mess and that won't change this season.

Scrivens will start Thursday's road game against the Red Wings, TSN's John Lu reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens gave up five goals on 44 shots in Saturday's shutout loss to the Senators, so he'll look to bounce back from that rough effort Thursday against a Detroit squad that is battling to stay in the NHL playoff structure.

Scrivens made 39 saves in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

His teammates didn't help him one little bit and they were porous while on the power play -- Scrivens faced several shorthanded rushes and allowed three goals while up a man. The Habs are a tough team to play behind; right now, we can't recommend anyone who dons the pads in that place.

Scrivens will be in the crease in Saturday's road game against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens was fantastic in his last start, stopping 41 of 43 shots en route to a 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres on Wednesday. The 29-year-old netminder will look to pick up his sixth win of the season Saturday in a decent road matchup with a Senators team averaging 2.75 goals per game at home this season, 13th in the NHL.

Scrivens was fantastic Wednesday, stopping 41 of 43 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens faced a ton of rubber at the hands of the Sabres in this one, eventually coming away with the win thanks to Paul Byron's unassisted snipe in OT. Montreal doesn't have much to play for at this point other than pride, so it was nice to see Scrivens get his fifth win in a Habs sweater, especially since he's struggled with a 2.90 GAA this season.

Scrivens will start Wednesday's game against the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Scrivens is slated to get the nod Wednesday after Mike Condon drew the start in net for the Habs in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers. Scrivens, who has allowed three goals in each of his last three starts, will take aim Wednesday at a Buffalo squad that will welcome top scorer Ryan O'Reilly back to the team's lineup after an 11-game absence.
