Canadiens sign 2013 top pick McCarron to contract
The Canadiens on Thursday announced the signing of Michael McCarron, their first pick at the 2013 NHL Draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Montreal Canadiens on Thursday announced the signing of Michael McCarron, their first pick at the 2013 NHL Draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract.

McCarron, who was selected with the 25th pick, recently participated in the team's development camp. He had been committed to attend Western Michigan University in the fall but now will spend the 2013-14 season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

McCarron spent the past two seasons playing for the United States National Team Development Program. The 6-foot-5, 228-pound right wing had 29 points and 166 penalty minutes in 49 games last season with the USNTDP under-18 team. He also played a key role internationally for the United States, posting three goals and five points in helping the U.S. team win the silver medal at the 2013 IIHF World Under-18 Championship.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
