The Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday hired former NHL forward John Madden to their amateur player recruitment group.

Madden, 39, played 898 career games spanning 13 NHL seasons, totaling 165 goals and 348 points. He earned the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the League's top defensive-forward in 2001, while finishing as a finalist for the award in 2003 and '04.

He played nine seasons with the New Jersey Devils and was a part of their Stanley Cup championships in 2000 and 2003. He joined the Chicago Blackhawks in 2009 and helped lead the team to the 2010 Stanley Cup.

Madden spent the 2010-11 season with the Minnesota Wild before appearing in 31 games for the Florida Panthers last season.

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.
