Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Sunday that the team has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract (2019-20 to 2021-22) with goaltender Cayden Primeau.

The 6-foot-3, 191-pound netminder posted a 25-10-1 record in 36 games with Northeastern University (Hockey East) this season. He registered a 2.09 goals-against average, along with a .933 save percentage and four shutouts. The Huskies were recently eliminated from the NCAA Hockey Tournament following a 5-1 loss against Cornell in the first round.

Primeau, 19, compiled a 44-18-6 record, a 2.00 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage in two seasons between the pipes for Northeastern. He also had eight shutouts. In 2017-2018, he was named to both the Hockey East All-Rookie Team and First All-Star Team, and earned Goaltender of the Year honors as well. Primeau was also named to the Hockey East First All-Star Team in 2018-19.

For the second year in a row, the Voorhees, NJ native was named a finalist for the Mike Richter Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding netminder in the NCAA Division I ranks.

Primeau was selected by the Canadiens in the seventh round, 199th overall at the 2017 NHL Draft. He helped Team USA earn a silver medal at the 2019 World Junior Hockey Championship, posting a 4-1-0 record, along with a 1.61 goals-against average and a .937 save percentage.

Primeau participated in the Canadiens’ development camp in 2017 and in 2018.
