FlappyLappy Posted June 15, 2015 Share Posted June 15, 2015 http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/canadiens-sign-torrey-mitchell-to-three-year-deal/ The Montreal Canadiens have signed Torrey Mitchell to a three-year contract, the team announced Monday. Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) June 15, 2015 His new contract comes with a $1.2 million cap hit, which is down from $1.9 million on his last deal. Mitchell, a pending UFA, was a trade deadline acquisition for the team. The Canadiens sent Jack Nevins and a 2016 seventh round pick to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for the 30-year-old centreman. Torrey is a versatile player who has a great deal of speed and experience, said general manager Marc Bergevin in the teams press release. He was an excellent addition to our group of forwards last season, and offered a solid performance during the playoffs. Torrey had one point (an assist) in 14 regular season games with the Canadiens, and one goal and four assists in the teams 12-game playoff run. The news comes shortly after the Canadiens locked down defencemen Nathan Beaulieu and Jeff Petry, and amid speculation about what action the cap-strapped team will take in order to up its offensive power. Not a bad depth player at all and for $1.2 million its a pretty good deal and a local boy as well Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
