Mark Streit reportedly isn't keen on being demoted.

The veteran defenseman won't report to the Laval Rocket and will take the next few days to evaluate his options, according to TVA's Renaud Lavoie.

Streit was loaned to the Montreal Canadiens' AHL affiliate after clearing waivers Friday.

The 39-year-old was reportedly shopped by the NHL club before being put through the waiver process.

He underwhelmed in the Canadiens' first two games after signing a one-year deal in July.
