MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens have signed Blake Geoffrion to a one-year, two-way contract.

The grandson of Hall of Famer Bernie `Boom Boom" Geoffrion, the forward had two goals and three assists in 35 games with Montreal and Nashville last season.

The Canadiens acquired the 24-year-old Geoffrion from Nashville for defenseman Hal Gill.

The announcement was made Monday by general manager Marc Bergevin.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
