Kent Hughes had some work to do to replenish his lineup following the trade of Sean Monahan. The team is now left with only two centers, which is obviously a problem.

The GM decided to address this early on Sunday morning, announcing the recall of Lucas Condotta.

"The Canadiens have recalled forward Lucas Condotta from the Laval Rocket." - Montreal Canadiens

But that's not all. The Rocket's top player and the 4th leading scorer in the American Hockey League, Brandon Gignac, has just signed a two-season, two-way contract.


"BROSSARD – Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes announced on Sunday that the team has agreed to terms on a two-year, two-way contract (2023-24 to 2024-25) with forward Brandon Gignac.

A native of Repentigny, QC, Gignac played 43 games with the Laval Rocket this season, registering 42 points (14G, 28A). The 26-year-old forward, who leads the Rocket in goals, assists, and points, also served 36 penalty minutes so far in 2023-24. Gignac was tied for fifth in AHL scoring when he signed his contract." - Montreal Canadiens

This announcement for Gignac has been awaited for a while, and it has finally happened. Now, all that's left is to announce his recall.
