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.

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

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
