Two-year contract extension for Rem Pitlick

MONTREAL — Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes announced on Saturday that the team has agreed to terms on a two-year, one-way contract extension with forward Rem Pitlick.

Pitlick amassed 26 points (9 goals, 17 assists) in 46 games with Montreal last season. He also served 12 penalty minutes.

The Ottawa, ON native has played 77 regular-season games over the course of three NHL seasons, registering 39 points, including 15 goals, as a member of the Nashville Predators, the Minnesota Wild, and the Canadiens. He has a 0.51 points-per-game average during that span.

Pitlick was selected in the third round (76th overall) by the Predators in the 2016 NHL Draft.
