The Montreal Canadiens are continuing their busy off-season, ensuring another recently-acquired player will continue to wear red, white, and blue.
On Saturday, the team signed defenceman Brett Kulak to a three-year contract worth an average of $1.85 million per season through 2021-22.
The 25-year-old Edmonton native was acquired from the Calgary Flames last October and posted career highs in goals (six), assists (11), points (17), and plus-minus (+12) in his first season with the Montreal Canadiens.
He played most of the season with Jeff Petry on the team's second pairing.
Over the past six weeks, the Montreal Canadiens have also re-signed defenceman Christian Folin and forwards Nate Thompson and Jordan Weal, all three of whom were acquired mid-season.
