Montreal Canadiens Sign Kirby Dach

The Montreal Canadiens have signed Kirby Dach to a four-year, $13.45 million contract. 

Dach was of course one of the Canadiens' biggest additions this summer, so fans were anxiously awaiting a contract to get finalized. Now, the 2019 third-overall pick is set to begin his tenure as a Canadien and will be aiming to get his development back on track. 

If Dach can become the top-six center that scouts believe he is capable of, this contract could end up being a very good one for Montreal. Keep in mind, Dach is still just 21 years old, so he has plenty of time to take that next step. Thus, having him locked up for the next four years at a $3.3625 million cap hit could be a real steal.

In 152 games over his three-year stint with the Chicago Blackhawks, Dach had 19 goals, 40 assists, and 59 points. Let's see how he improves upon these career stats with the Canadiens in 2022-23.
