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.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
