Montreal Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey announced Friday the signing of forward Matt D’Agostini to a one-year contract for the 2009-10 season. As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Last season, D’Agostini amassed 21 points (12 goals, 9 assists) with an average ice time of 13:24 in 53 regular-season games with the Canadiens. The 22-year-old was the AHL’s third-leading scorer with 25 points (14 goals, 11 assists) and a plus-7 rating in 20 games when he was recalled by the Canadiens from the Hamilton Bulldogs in November. D’Agostini also made his NHL playoff debut in 2008-09, taking part in three of the Canadiens’ four quarter-final contests against the Boston Bruins.

In 2007-08, the Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario native was the Bulldogs’ second-leading scorer with 53 points (23 goals, 30 assists) and fired 235 shots on goal in 76 AHL games.

In 2006-07, in his first season as a pro, D’Agostini won the Calder Cup with the Bulldogs. The six-foot, 201-pound right-winger registered 13 points (4 goals, 9 assists) with a plus-5 rating in 22 AHL playoff contests. He also scored 49 points (21 goals, 28 assists) and posted a plus-18 rating in 63 regular-season games.
