Early this morning, the Canadiens announced that they signed Charles Hudon to a one-year, one-way contract ($800,000).

Just like his fellow teammates Armia and Lehkonen, he avoided going to arbitration. His date set for August 2nd.

This will be Hudon’s fourth season with the Montreal Canadiens having played his first professional season during the 2014-15 campaign. In his past three seasons, he played 107 games scoring 13 goals and tallying 24 assists.

It goes without saying that last season was a hard one for Hudon who only played 32 games tallying 9 points. He was scratched for most of the season and was clearly unhappy with his usage.

You could see how disappointed Hudon was during his end of season interview and he didn’t know what his future held with the Habs. Earlier this summer, he rejected a qualifying offer. Clearly, something changed and both camps came to an agreement. Hopefully, this turns into a comeback season for both parties involved.

Coming at a discount rate, this is a “show me” contract.  Can big things be expected over the course of next season from Charles Hudon?

And while the injuries and bad calls are valid excuses for their current losing streak, there are plenty of errors […]
