The Montreal Canadiens made a lineup shuffle with the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday, calling up forward Louis Leblanc from their AHL affiliate and sending down centre Andreas Engqvist.

Leblanc, playing in his second stint with the NHL club this season, is expected to be in the lineup on Thursday when the Canadiens visit the New Jersey Devils.

Taken in the first-round by the Canadiens at the 2009 NHL Draft, the Montreal native scored two goals and three assists in 14 NHL games this season.

Engqvist, who was called up by the Canadiens earlier this week, played 4:12 in Wednesday night's 3-1 loss to Buffalo and was minus-1 in the game.
