Canadiens sign free agent forward Stefan Fournier to three year deal

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens have signed free agent forward Stefan Fournier to a three-year contract.

Fournier had 35 goals and 72 points for the Memorial Cup-champion Halifax Mooseheads in the 2012-13 regular season.

He added 16 goals and 13 assists in 17 playoff contests, including three points in the tournament final last May in Saskatoon.

The six-foot-three, 212-pounder from Dorval, Que., also led his team with 100 penalty minutes in the regular season and maintained a +17 plus/minus differential.

He is currently taking part in his first Canadiens’ development camp.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
