Canadiens sign goalie Fucale to entry-level contract
The Montreal Canadiens have signed goaltender Zachary Fucale to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Montreal Canadiens have signed goaltender Zachary Fucale to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Saturday.

Fucale, the No. 36 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, had a record of 45-5-3 for Halifax in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last season, with a 2.35 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

Fucale helped the Mooseheads win the President Cup with a 16-1-0 record in the QMJHL playoffs. He also helped Halifax to its first Memorial Cup, with three wins in four games.

The 18-year-old Quebec native, who is at Canadiens training camp, has a 77-32-4 record in 113 junior games since making his debut with Halifax in 2011-12.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
