Montreal Canadiens sign Ryan Poehling to two-year contract extension

The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Ryan Poehling to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Friday.

The first season of the deal will be a two-way contract, paying Poehling $750,000 at the NHL level. In the second year, the contract will only be a one-way deal, paying the same amount.

Selected by the Canadiens 25th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft, Poehling set career-highs in goals (11) and assists (14) with the Laval Rocket, Montreal’s AHL affiliate, last season. In 64 total games with Laval, Poehling has scored 16 times and assisted on 22 others for his team.

Poehling was a member of Team USA at the 2018 and 2019 World Junior Hockey Championships. The Lakeville, MN native was named both Tournament MVP and Best Forward at the 2019 event, helping the Americans earn a silver medal. He registered eight points (5 goals, 3 assists) in seven games.

The 22-year-old has played 28 games in the NHL with Montreal, too, scoring four goals and an assist.

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!
