Mooseheads goaltender Fucale signs three-year entry level deal with Canadiens

MONTREAL - Goaltender Zach Fucale signed a three-year entry level contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Fucale was picked 36th overall at the NHL draft in June from the Memorial Cup champion Halifax Mooseheads, where he is expect to return after participating in the Canadiens training camp.

The 18-year-old from Rosemere, Que., went 45-5-3 with the powerhouse Mooseheads last season and went 16-1 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
