Depth forward Brock Trotter is back with the Montreal Canadiens after signing a one-year, two-way deal with the club in a move announced Monday.

Trotter, 24, played with Riga in
Kontinental Hockey League last season, putting up 9 goals and 26 points.

Before going to Riga, Trotter had played the previous three seasons with Hamilton, Montreal's farm team in the American Hockey League. There, the 5-foot-10, 180 pound left winger amassed 57 goals and 135 points in 172 games. In his final year with the Bulldogs, 2009-10, Trotter led the team with 36 goals.

Never drafted, Trotter joined Montreal as a free agent in 2008, but managed just two games at the NHL level.



Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
