Canadiens sign minor league defenceman Anderson to one-year contract

MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens signed minor-league defenceman Chad Anderson to a one-year contract, the club announced Wednesday.

Anderson, a 26-year-old free agent, signed a two-way contract and will likely play for the Hamilton Bulldogs next season. The six-foot-four, 217-pound blue-liner played for the AHL Philadelphia Phantoms last season, where he had two goals and 11 assists and was plus-11.

The Canadiens have been restocking their top farm club with veterans.

Earlier this summer, they signed 28-year-old defenceman Chris Henry from the AHL Milwaukee Admirals and acquired defenceman Shawn Belle, a 23-year-old who has spent three seasons in the AHL, from the Minnesota Wild for minor league centre Corey Locke.
