The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because talks between Streit and the Montreal Canadiens have been private.
Analysis: The Canadiens assigned the 39-year-old to the AHL's Laval Rocket earlier Friday after none of the other 30 NHL teams put in a claim for the Swiss defender. Streit played just two games since rejoining Montreal, averaging 14 minutes of ice time and registering a minus-2 rating. Streit, who won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins last season while playing in three playoff games, has 96 goals and 338 assists in 786 career regular-season games.

Analysis: Streit turns 40 in December but can still be a factor on the power play, as he showed by producing 13 points in 68 games with the Flyers and Penguins last season. His addition makes it appear less likely that Montreal will bringing back Andrei Markov.
