Montreal Canadiens Making Another Free-Agent Splash

We reported earlier this week there were rumblings the Montreal Canadiens wanted to make another move, and it turns out to be the case. The team has come to terms with free-agent forward, Michael Frolik on a one-year/one-way contract, paying the unrestricted free-agent $750,000 for next season.

The 32-year-old winger spent last season between the Calgary Flames and Buffalo Sabres and had a down season. Frolik finished the year with only 14 points in 57 games, but the Canadiens are excited for him to head into training camp and battle for a spot in the team's bottom-six forwards.

Frolik's best season came back was all the way back in his rookie year in 2009, where he finished the year with 45 points. The Czech Republic native has enjoyed similar years throughout this career, and the Canadiens hope they find lightning in a bottle with this low-risk, high-reward type of addition.
