Audette won't receive a qualifying offer from the Canadiens, which means he'll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
This news doesn't come as a surprise, as Audette hasn't been able to crack the big club's lineup since turning pro in 2015-16. The 2014 fifth-round pick has, however, been somewhat productive in the minors over that span, totaling 37 goals and 98 points in 202 appearances, so he may get another shot with a different NHL organization.
