Canadiens sign RW Perezhogin to one-year deal
Financial terms were not disclosed, but TSN of Canada reported Sunday that the deal was to be worth $627,000.
Perezhogin becomes the 11th restricted free agent retained by the Canadiens, leaving only right wing Michael Ryder unsigned. The 26-year-old is awaiting his arbitration hearing.
Drafted 25th overall in 2001, Perezhogin made his NHL debut last season, recording nine goals and 10 assists in 67 games. The 22-year-old Russian also appeared in 11 games with Hamilton of the American Hockey League, notching two assists and eight penalty minutes.
