The Canadiens have signed veteran defenseman Jeff Woywitka to a one-year, two-way contract for the 2011-12 season. As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

In 2010-11, Woywitka recorded 2 goals and 11 points in 63 games with the Dallas Stars. He finished with a plus-5 rating, fifth-best on the team.

Since the 2005-06 season, Woywitka, 27, has played 251 career regular season games in the NHL with the Blues and Stars. A former first-round pick of the Flyers in the 2001 Entry Draft, he has registered 8 goals and 49 points.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
