Canadiens ink Dalton Thrower to an entry level contract

Jamie Sabau

The rough-and-tumble d-man will likely be joining the Hamilton Bulldogs next year.

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that they have signed defensive prospect Dalton Thrower to a standard three year entry level contract.

Thrower just completed his 5th year in the WHL, as the captain of the Vancouver Giants. The 20 year old put together a rather impressive campaign with a mediocre Giants team.

Unfortunately for Thrower, he sustained an ankle injury that meant he missed the end of the season, and the entirety of the playoffs.

His ankle caused some concern to Habs management, which of course slowed down the signing.

In 42 games with the Giants this year, he contributed 12 goals and added 27 assists, to go along with 70 PIM.

The 6'0", 196 lbs defenceman is exactly the type of player that Marc Bergevin seems to target. He's a rough-and-tumble customer, and is oozing with character.
