The Montreal Canadiens have inked forward Daniel Carr to a two-year, one-way extension with a $725, 000 AAV. Carr joined the Habs organization back on April 24th, 2014 out of Union College as a free agent.

After scoring his first NHL goal on his first shot in his first NHL game back on November 29th, 2015 against the Carolina Hurricanes, Daniel Carr has solidified a spot in the Canadiens lineup this upcoming season. The feisty hard-working winger was one of the only bright spots during this past disastrous year and was able to post six goals and three assists in 23 games before injury. He’s able to do a lot of work in tight around the net and plays bigger than his actual size. The Alberta native has always managed to score at every level he has played in, so expect an increase on his six NHL goals for the fast-approaching season.

It’s unknown where Therrien will slot Carr in the lineup for 2016-17 but he is able to move up and down to wherever he is needed. He split time between the IceCaps and Habs last year but it’s clear that it will only be the big club going forward.
