MONTREAL - Defence prospect Dalton Thrower has signed a three-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

The six-foot 203-pound Thrower had 12 goals and 39 points in 42 games with the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League this season.

He led Vancouver defencemen with eight power-play goals.

Thrower, 20, had 147 points in 285 career WHL games.

The Squamish, B.C. native was picked 51st overall by Montreal in the 2012 draft.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
