Joel Armia

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with Joel Armia (until the end of the 2024-25 season). The deal has an average annual value of $3.4 million.

Armia, 28, skated in 41 games with the Canadiens in 2020-21. He registered 14 points (7 goals, 7 assists), while also serving 10 penalty minutes and posting a plus-10 differential. The 6’04” and 212 lbs right-winger enjoyed a solid playoff run alongside veteran linemates Corey Perry and Eric Staal, with whom he formed a highly effective trio. He contributed to the team’s success with five goals and three assists in 21 postseason contests, helping Montreal advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

Armia also served 106 penalty minutes and scored 10 short-handed goals over the course of his NHL career. He tallied 10 goals and added five assists in 44 playoff outings with Winnipeg and Montreal.

Armia was selected in the first round (16th overall) by the Buffalo Sabres in 2011. He was acquired by the Canadiens in July 2018 along with goaltender Steve Mason in return for defenseman Simon Bourque and two draft picks. Armia played the 300th game of his NHL career on January 21 in Vancouver.
