The Montreal Canadiens on Thursday signed goalkeeper Kayden Primo to a three-year contract.
The deal is in one category and has an average annual value of $890,000. Thus, the son of former National League striker Keith Primo will earn $770,000 in 2022-2023, $800,000 the following season and $1.1 million in 2024-2025.
Kayden Primo, 23, helped the Habs Academy reach the final of the American Hockey Conference last spring. With Laval Rocket, he set a record of 16-12-3 during the regular season, before winning nine of 14 playoff games, during which he conserved 2.17 goals against average and an efficiency rating of 0.936.
With the Canadians, the American went 1-7-1 last season, as well as a 4.62 GAA and 0.868 savings ratio.
The 199th overall pick in the 2017 draft will play his fourth professional season and will obviously be present at the club’s next training camp in a few days.
General Manager Kent Hughes has settled all of his urgent contractual files, since the day before, Kirby Dash has agreed with the organization.
