• Habs Re-Sign Mitchell For Three Years

    News: Torrey Mitchell re-signed with the Canadiens on a three-year, $3.6 million contract Monday, Steven Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
    Analysis: Acquired from the Sabres prior to the trade deadline last season, Torrey Mitchell proved to be a useful cog in the Canadiens' bottom-six ranks. Though he only provided one point in his 14 regular-season games with the Habs, he ratcheted up his production in the postseason, supplying a goal and four assists across 12 contests. Mitchell isn't likely to see his role grow as a result of the scoring output, but he should be relatively secure in his standing as the team's top centering option on the checking line.

The 30-year-old only managed 14 points in the regular season, but he's sporting a plus-4 rating in the playoffs and is a valuable fourth-liner who can produce points. With depth players like Mitchell, Dale Weise and Brian Flynn having stepped up, Montreal could be in for a lengthy postseason run.
