BROSSARD - Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes announced on Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms on a four-year contract (2023-24 to 2026-27) with forward Alex Newhook. The deal will pay him an average salary of $2.9 million per season.

Newhook, a 22-year-old centerman, tallied 16 goals and 14 assists in 82 games with the Colorado Avalanche in 2022-23. The St. John's, NL native also added one assist in seven playoff contests.
