Canadiens re-sign Mathieu Darche
Montreal Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced Tuesday that the team has re-signed forward Mathieu Darche to a one-year contract. No financial terms were disclosed.

Darche, 33, had 5 goals and 10 points in 29 games with the Canadiens in 2009-10. Three of his goals were game-winners. Darche started the season with the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs, where he had 16 goals and 25 points in 32 games. He was recalled by the Canadiens on Jan. 19 and participated in 29 of the teams last 32 games. He also appeared in 11 of the Canadiens' 19 playoff games.

Since his debut in the NHL in 2000-01, Darche has amassed 34 points (13 goals, 21 assists) with 30 penalty minutes in 130 regular-season games for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Nashville Predators, San Jose Sharks, Tampa Bay Lightning and the Canadiens.

The Montreal native signed with the Canadiens as a free agent on July 2, 2009.
