The Montreal Canadiens have announced a one-year, two-way contract for forward Laurent Dauphin for the 2021-22 season.
The contract carries a $750,000 value at the NHL level, and guarantees $215,000 to Dauphin. He is set to make $175,000 at the AHL level.
Dauphin was in his first full season with the team after being acquired from the Nashville Predators in a trade that saw Michael McCarron go the other way. He had five goals and 11 assists in 21 AHL games for the Laval Rocket. He also spent some time on the Canadiens taxi squad this season.
In 46 AHL games since the trade, he has 12 goals and 19 assists. He has the ability to play wing and centre, and to play up and down the AHL lineup. He can kill penalties, and play two-way hockey. He was a second-round pick (39th overall) of the Arizona Coyotes in the 2013 NHL Draft.
