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 don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
