Wednesday, 11.25.2015 / 7:00 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Marc Bergevin has guided the Montreal Canadiens from worst to first in the Eastern Conference since he was hired as the 17th general manager in their history prior to the 2012-13 season. He was rewarded Wednesday with a five-year contract extension.

Bergevin's extension carries him through the 2021-22 season. He has this season and the 2016-17 season remaining on his current contract, which he signed when he was hired by the Canadiens on May 2, 2012.

"It's all about timing, but [Canadiens owner] Geoff [Molson] has shown me on a few occasions in the past that he was willing to keep me in Montreal, and at the end of the day, the timing was right and we got the deal done," Bergevin said. "Today, I think we're both happy."

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec – Montreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher will miss a minimum of six weeks after having surgery on two fractured fingers on his left hand, the Canadiens said Tuesday.

Gallagher sustained the injury Sunday in a 4-2 win against the New York Islanders while blocking a shot by defenseman Johnny Boychuk.

“It’s a big loss,” coach Michel Therrien said. “He’s a big part of the success of this hockey team. But we lost [goaltender Carey Price] for a period of time. For me it’s not an excuse to not keep having success.”

Gallagher is third on the Canadiens and tied for 23rd in the NHL with 19 points, one behind the 20 points of his linemates Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec. He is also second on Montreal and 16th in the NHL with 70 shots on goal.
