An interesting player from the Canadiens has just left the team for the Washington Capitals

The Montreal Canadiens have just lost another French-speaking player from their organization, as Pierrick Dubé, a very interesting find during the last season of the Laval Rocket, has just agreed to terms with the Washington Capitals.

The excellent Anthony Marcotte from BPM Sports reports that he has signed a deal that will earn him $870,000 if he plays in the NHL and $82,500 in the American League.

"Pierrick Dubé agrees to a 2-year, two-way contract with the Washington Capitals. A very nice contract for someone who arrived last year at the Canadiens' camp with an invitation only."

This is a disappointing loss for the depth of the Tricolor's organization, as Dubé made an excellent impression this year, in his first professional season.

At 22 years old, he amassed a solid record of 32 points, including 16 goals, in 44 games with the Laval Rocket. What's impressive is that he started the year in Trois-Rivières, in the ECHL, but his excellent start of the season with 14 points, including 9 goals, in 9 games with the Lions, allowed him to quickly be called up and stay in Laval.

The large wave of rookie players joining the Rocket next year has surely played a role in his departure.
