The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with George “Bud” Holloway just moments after signing Mark Barberio. This is another depth move for the general manager which most certainly will help out the farm team in St. John’s.

Holloway, 27, is a former 3rd round pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft for the Los Angeles Kings. He played with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL over the course of three seasons before heading to Sweden. Holloway suited up for Skellefteå of the SHL for three years, scoring 153 points in 163 games. He then moved on to Bern in Switzerland and played under Guy Boucher. While with Bern, Holloway tallied 37 points in 42 games and added another 8 in 11 games during the playoffs.

Holloway is a skilled winger with a great shot and playmaking ability. Plays a well-rounded game and can fill in at any forward position. Has good leadership qualitiles and work ethic. Excellent when manning the powerplay point, he can also kill penalties.

The 6’0″, 200-pound right winger could be someone to watch at camp as he may push to make the squad. If not, it’s a great pick up for the St. John’s IceCaps and would serve as a replacement for the veteran presence lost down on the AHL team.
