MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens have signed goaltender Peter Delmas to a three-year contract.

Delmas, 21, played in two games with the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs in 2010-11, posting a 1-0-1 record, 1.92 goals against average and .933 save percentage. He spent most of the season with the Canadiens’ development team in the ECHL, going 15-6-2 for the Wheeling Nailers with a 2.03 goals against average and .928 save percentage.

A native of Bedford, N.S., the six-foot-two 190-pounder played junior hockey with the QMJHL's Lewiston, Quebec and Halifax.

The Canadiens also signed goaltender Nathan Lawson to a one-year, two-way contract.

Lawson played his first 10 NHL games with the New York Islanders last year, posting a 1-4-2 record, but spent most of the season with the team's AHL affiliate.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
