Mark Streit's reunion with the Montreal Canadiens is officially over.

The club revealed Monday that a mutual agreement was reached with the veteran defenseman in order to terminate his contract.

Streit was waived last week after Montreal was reportedly shopping him. He chose not to report to the AHL after going unclaimed by all other NHL clubs on the wire.

The 39-year-old signed a one-year deal to return to the Canadiens in July.

He played his first three NHL seasons with the organization from 2005-06 to 2007-08, after being selected by Montreal in the ninth round of the 2004 draft.

Streit's return to the Canadiens lasted only two games, during which he was held off the scoresheet while averaging a mere 14:13 in ice time.
