Canadiens sign centre David Desharnais to four-year contract extension

MONTREAL - Centre David Desharnais has signed a four-year contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

The team announced the signing Friday morning.

The 26-year-old Laurier Station, Que., native will reportedly earn US$3.5 milion per season.

Desharnais was third in team scoring last season with career highs of 16 goals and 60 points.

He has eight goals and eight assists in 26 games this season.

The five-foot-seven playmaking centre was signed as an undrafted free agent by Montreal in 2008.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
