The Montreal Canadiens have reduced their training camp roster by four players.

Tuesday's cuts include forward Nick Suzuki, who'll report to the OHL's Owen Sound Attack. Earlier this month, the Canadiens acquired Suzuki from the Vegas Golden Knights as part of a deal for former captain Max Pacioretty.

The Canadiens also released veteran forward Joel Ward from his professional tryout offer. Defensemen Michal Moravcik and David Sklenicka have been assigned to the AHL's Laval Rocket.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Montreal's first-round pick in 2018, is among the players remaining at training camp.
