BREAKING: Montreal Canadiens sign RFA Kirby Dach to VERY team-friendly deal

The Montreal Canadiens got their fanbase very excited at the 2022 NHL Entry draft when they selected Juraj Slafkovský with the first overall pick, then shortly after made a blockbuster trade to bring in the 2019 former 3rd overall pick, Kirby Dach.

Dach has shown in his short NHL career that he has a lot of potential, but unfortunately for him that just never panned out in Chicago. A wrist injury in the World Juniors where he was selected to be Captain for Team Canada, drastically put a damper in his development, and he just never caught his stride after that.


But while this was unfortunate for Chicago, it could be a huge gain for the Montreal Canadiens.


Kirby Dach, signed 4x$3.4M by MTL, is a young playmaking centre who has struggled to take the next step. So far, doesn't shoot much and doesn't score when he does. Decent transition player and nice hands but struggles to create sustained possession and offence
