The best player in the AHL this year on a AHL Contract. Well deserved and will likely spend the rest of the season in the NHL.

He's likely going to get 20-30 NHL games on the 4th line this year, we shall see how it goes.

Be constructive everyone. This is a 26 year old guy who with every passing year probably saw his NHL aspirations drifting further away and now he has earned a 2way contract and a possibility of playing another game in the NHL. Bravo.

Also I’m assuming this guy could skate circles around pretty much everyone who posts on this site, me included. So remember that keyboard warriors before you post any unnecessary negativity.

Don't get too excited and remember that Anthony Richard had a super season in the AHL last year and even got called up for 13 games.... and is now playing for the Providence Bruins.

Is anyone expecting him to make a difference? I'm hoping he becomes a dependable 4th liner. Just solid 2 way hockey.

The timing seems weird, does this pave way for an Evans trade or do Montreal really don't want to see Newhook playing center?

Newhook center I’d imagine, unless we run both Gignac and Condotta at center

Gignac is currently one of the best AHLer, nice to see him get a shot at an NHL roster

He wins 57% of his faceoffs in the AHL but 170 pounds doesn't scream 4th line material.

Monahan was traded away 2 days ago. The timing couldn't be less weird.

MSL's team, The 4th liner plays at key times (particularly to win faceoffs), and kill penalties. HockeyDB also says he's 185LBS.

You must be right. He must have gained weight since NJ. 185lbs is a lot more respectable. Sadly I tried to confirm but the AHL website doesn't give out weights and Canadiens website doesn't list him yet.

MTL isn’t close to contract limit, 2yr league min.

No downside for either party
