The Montreal Canadiens have informed defenceman Tomas Kaberle that he will be the team's second and final compliance buyout.

The veteran defenceman has one-year and $4.5 million left on his current contract, which carries a $4.25 million cap hit.

The Rakovnik, Czech Republic native played in only 10 games with the Canadiens in 2012/13 and contributed three assists.

He has spent parts of two seasons with the Canadiens, in 43 games during the 2011/12 season he had three goals and 19 assists, after being acquired in a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes for defenceman Jaroslav Spacek.

Kaberle signed a three-year, $12.75 million deal with the Hurricanes in 2011 after capturing the Stanley Cup as a mid-season pickup with the Boston Bruins.

The 35-year-old defenceman was drafted in the eighth round, 204th overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

He spent parts of 12 seasons with the Maple Leafs before being traded to the Bruins.

The Canadiens used their first compliance buyout on forward Scott Gomez earlier this season.
