Canadiens sign Jeff Woywitka

Woywitka, a veteran defenceman of 251 NHL games, has signed a one year, two-way contract with Montreal. He would have to clear waivers in order to be sent to Hamilton. The signing is a depth move, possibly in case of a training camp injury, and is reminiscient of the Canadiens signing Alexandre Picard last year, except for a big, slow, left handed defensive defenceman rather than a smaller, mobile, right handed offensive defenceman. It also decreases the likelihood that we will see Brendon Nash or Mark Mitera called up in case of injury. Woywitka could make the NHL team as a spare even without an injury, as the Canadiens have been known to carry 8 defencemen in the past.
