MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Brock Trotter to a one-year, two-way deal.
Trotter had nine goals and 17 assists in 49 games last season with Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League.
The five-foot-10, 180-pound left-winger had 57 goals and 78 assists in 172 games with the American Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs between 2007-10.
Trotter led the Bulldogs in goals with 36 in his last season with the team before going to play in Europe.
The undrafted 24-year-old previously joined Montreal as a free agent in 2008, but went scoreless in just two games played with the team.

The hospital is being rebuilt by World Vision and the NHL Players’ Association. He’s joined by former Montreal enforcer Georges Laraque, whose parents were born in Haiti.
