Torrey Mitchell's time in Montreal will be extended as the forward has re-signed for three years and $3.6M.
The Quebec native Mitchell registered just a single point in 12 games for Montreal after coming over in a trade with Buffalo during the regular season, but he quintupled his output with a goal and four assists over their 12 game playoff run. With 20 players now committed to their 2015-16 books, the Canadiens have $2.525M in cap space. Mitchell can't be recommended for your fantasy squad, but Canadiens fans can still be happy to have a reliable veteran defensive forward to help round out their bottom-six. Jun 15 - 8:24 PM

In a span of 10 minutes, I went from the 30th-place team to a team that has a chance to win a Stanley Cup. I hope that I can take advantage of this opportunity."
