Montreal Canadiens sign Brendan Gallagher to a 6 year contract extension

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Wednesday that the Habs have agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension with forward Brendan Gallagher (until the end of the 2026-27 NHL season).

The deal has an average annual value of $6.5 million.

Gallagher, 28, collected 43 points in 59 games with the Canadiens in 2019-20. His 22 goals (including 21 at even strength) ranked him first among his teammates – tied with Tomas Tatar – for a third straight season.

In eight NHL seasons with the Canadiens, Gallagher has registered 334 points (173 goals, 161 assists) in 547 regular season games. Gallagher has also amassed 25 points (11 goals, 14 assists) in 49 career NHL playoff games.

Gallagher was selected in the fifth round (147th overall) by the Canadiens at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
