The Russian native had recorded only three goals and nine assists during last season’s 38 games. He had a +2 rating and 33 penalty minutes. In his 105 NHL games, he has recorded six goals and 13 assists. His +/- rating is a -16. Emelin is expected to receive $4.1 million each year.
This also came out just after we learned that George Parros will participate against the Minnesota Wild Friday night. The Canadiens are balancing between injuries while keeping a good record of 8-5-0 and sit in third in the Atlantic Division.
