Montreal signs Michael Bournival to a one-year deal

The restricted free agent has agreed to terms for a one-year contract

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

It's a one-year two-way contract that will pay him $600,000 in the NHL, and $125,000 in the AHL.

Bournival, 23, split time between the Habs and the Bulldogs last season, and will likely be fighting for a spot once training camp opens. He also had to deal with concussion issues in 2014-15, which have hopefully since subsided.

As it stands, the next big name that needs a contract from the Habs is Jarred Tinordi, and of course Alex Galchenyuk.

Press Release

MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Tuesday that forward Michael Bournival has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract (2015-16).
Bournival, 23, played 29 games with the Canadiens in 2014-15, recording five points (3 goals, 2 assists). He posted a differential of +3 and served 4 penalty minutes.

The 5’11’’ and 196 lbs forward also took part in 12 games with the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs, recording nine points (3 goals, 6 assists) and a differential of +4.

Bournival has played 89 career regular season games in the NHL, all with the Canadiens, tallying 19 points (10 goals, 9 assists), in addition to his 22 penalty minutes and 105 shots on goal.
