Vejdemo agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Montreal on Friday.
Vejdemo spent the bulk of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors with AHL Laval, picking up nine goals and 10 assists in 47 contests. The 23-year-old center did, however, make his NHL debut this year, appearing in seven games for the Habs and registering his first NHL goal.

Vejdemo had two shots and one hit over 9:18 of ice time in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning.
Injuries to Montreal's forwards have created an opportunity for Vejdemo, who has skated on the fourth line the last two games. He made his NHL debut in Tuesday's loss to the Hurricanes, playing just 6:04 in that contest. His or Dale Weise's job will be the first to go as injured players return, but there's uncertainty as to when the Habs can expect that to occur.... See More ... See Less
