After taking part in Montreal Canadiens training camp on a professional tryout, Eric Gelinas has been signed to a one-year AHL deal, and will play for the Laval Rocket.

Gelinas looked good in certain aspects during his time with the NHL team, with his shot being the most notable. That will be a dangerous weapon on an AHL that was already one of the better man-advantage squads last season, before adding several offensive veterans.

In 172 AHL games, Gelinas has recorded 76 points (26 G, 50 A). He should be expected to score at about that pace this season.
