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

Fournier, 21, had 72 points (35 goals) in 66 games with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2012-13. He led the team with 100 penalty minutes and had a plus-17 rating.

The 6-foot-3, 212-pound player added 29 points (16 goals) in 17 playoff games, with three points for Halifax as it won the Memorial Cup.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
