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.
