Major News Confirmed in the Canadiens Organization: Exciting Reinforcement Will Come Tonight

In the last few minutes, the organization officially confirmed that reinforcements will arrive in the Montreal Canadiens' lineup for tonight's game against the Washington Capitals.

Indeed, the 26-year-old forward, Brandon Gignac, will play his very first game in the Montreal uniform, having signed a two-way contract with the team Sunday morning. It will notably be the first opportunity for the Repentigny-born center since 2019, when he had played a single game with the New Jersey Devils at the time.

What excellent news!


This is a well-deserved promotion for someone who was leading in points at the Laval Rocket with an impressive tally of 14 goals and 28 assists (42 points) in 43 games. It will be very interesting to see how Martin St-Louis intends to use him, but all signs point to Brandon Gignac playing on the fourth line in tonight's game.

Certainly, we wish him the best of luck for his first game with the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge!
