The Canadiens announced on Wednesday that they’ve agreed to a two-year contract (2019-20 to 2020-21) with defenseman Mike Reilly ($1.5 million AAV).
Reilly, 25, suited up for 57 games with the Canadiens, scoring three goals for 11 points and posting an even differential.
The Chicago native was acquired from the Minnesota Wild at the 2018 trade deadline in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019.
Reilly has played 160 career NHL games with the Wild and Canadiens, notching seven goals for 37 points over four seasons.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound rearguard was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the fourth round (97th overall) in 2011.
