SIGNING: The Montreal Canadiens have signed Erik Haula to a 3 year deal.
Erik Haula: 3 years, $ 2.1 million dollar contract ( $ 700,000.00 per season ).
The Montreal Canadiens are very pleased to have Erik Haula join our organization. Adding depth and youth down the middle has been a priority of ours of late, and Erik will do just that. He will strengthen our team in North Dakota, as we had a need for a 2nd-line center with the Fighting Sioux, and we are hopeful that with some time to develop that we will have a future NHLer on our hands.
In other news, rumors are running rampant right now that the Habs have missed out on one of their prime UFA targets. Habs GM _arby_18 refused to comment, but says that the plan is still to locate a d-man or two via free agency.
