While appearing on the show "Tout le monde en parle" Sunday night, Montreal Canadiens' forward Rafael Harvey-Pinard made a major statement regarding a potential contract extension with the team.

Although this segment went somewhat unnoticed, it demonstrates the love the Québécois feels for the organization and the Montreal fans. Indeed, the 24-year-old left winger clearly stated that he was ready to accept less money to stay with the Canadiens in the future.

"It obviously depends on the amount of money, but as for me, I'm ready to accept less money to stay with the Canadiens." - Rafael Harvey-Pinard

Wow! We love it!


Clearly, the 7th round pick in 2019 is very happy to have the opportunity to play for his childhood team. According to his words, it's not a more lucrative offer from another NHL team that will prevent him from pursuing his dream of wearing the Blue-White-Red uniform.

Like Cole Caufield, who could have possibly received more money this summer, the Canadiens players are proud to play for the team and are willing to accept a lower salary to help Kent Hughes build a winning team in the coming years.

This is great news and it's certainly very promising for the club's future, as the general manager has managed to establish a salary hierarchy that should convince several members of the organization to accept a lower salary than their actual value in the free agent market.

Scoring 14 goals and 6 assists (20 points) in 34 games last season, RHP signed a two-year deal valued at just $1.1 million per season.

It's certainly a real bargain for the team, as he always gives his heart and soul to help the CH achieve success.
