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

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
