Montreal Canadiens News

The Canadiens have acquired Joel Armia, Steve Mason, a 2019 seventh-round pick and a 2020 fourth round pick from the Jets for Simon Bourque.

Armia was the No.16 overall pick in 2011 and is coming off of his best season in the NHL. The 25-year-old had 12 goals and 17 assists (29 points) in 79 games with the Jets. The big-winger will fill out a role in the Canadiens’ bottom-6.

The Blackhawks have acquired Michael Chaput from the Canucks for Tanner Kero.

Chaput has split the last five seasons between the AHL and NHL with the Blue Jackets and Canucks organizations. He has posted strong numbers in the AHL, collecting 42 points (17G / 25A) in 55 games with Utica (AHL) last season. He is expected to be in Rockford (AHL) to start this upcoming season.

The Canadiens acquired Max Domi from Arizona and signed him to a two-year contract worth $6.3 million ($3.15M AAV).

Domi was acquired from the Coyotes in a straight-up trade for Alex Galchenyuk. Domi was selected No.12 overall in 2013 and has yet to fully live up to expectations after a great rookie season—18 goals and 34 assists in 81 games. Since then he has scored just 18 goals with 65 assists (83 points) in 141 games. Domi brings some physicality along with great playmaking ability to the left-side of the Canadiens’ lineup, where he figures to slot in behind Max Pacioretty.

The Canadiens have re-signed Antti Niemi to a one-year deal worth $950K.

Following a disastrous start to the 2017-18 season with the Penguins and Panthers, Niemi settled in in Montreal. The veteran netminder went 7-5-4 with a 2.46 GAA, .929 SV% and one shutout in 17 starts and two relief appearances with the Canadiens. He will likely be back as the Habs’ primary backup behind Carey Price next season.
