MONTREAL (AP) -The Montreal Canadiens have signed Swedish forward Mikael Johansson to a one-year contract.
The 23-year-old Johansson signed as a free agent, agreeing to terms on a two-way contract with Montreal after spending the past four seasons with Farjestads BK Karlstad of the Swedish Elite League.
The 5-foot-10 center had six goals and a team-high 28 assists in 49 regular-season games. He added a goal and three assists in 11 playoff games to help lead Farjestads to the Swedish title.
Chosen 289th overall by Detroit in the 2003 draft, Johansson never played for the Red Wings.
