MONTREAL - The Canadiens announced on Wednesday that they've agreed to a two-year contract (2019-20 to 2020-21) with defenseman Mike Reilly ($1.5 million AAV).

Reilly, 25, suited up for 57 games with the Canadiens in 2018-19, scoring three goals for 11 points and posting an even differential.

The Chicago native was acquired from the Minnesota Wild at the 2018 trade deadline in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019.

Reilly has played 160 career NHL games with the Wild and Canadiens, notching seven goals for 37 points over four seasons.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound rearguard was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the fourth round (97th overall) in 2011.
