The Montreal Canadiens announced yesterday that they have signed forward David Desharnais to a 4-year contract extension.
So far this season, Desharnais has 8 goals and 8 assists for 16 points. He is also currently playing center on the teams top line with Max Pacioretty and rookie Brendan Gallagher.
This is a big step up from his current contract, which was 2-years at 950,000 per season. Desharnais is set to make 14 million over the next 4 seasons with his new deal.
Many fans of the team were not happy about the contract he was given, saying things like “That’s too much for a 1-dimensional, 50-55pt scorer”. Other fans said that he has earned his new contract and he deserves it.
Either way, David Desharnais will wear a Habs uniform for 4 more seasons, unless of course he gets traded. But, i don’t see that happening at this point.
