Max Pacioretty is the latest NHL player to head overseas, as the Montreal Canadiens winger has joined Ambri Piotta of the Swiss League.

The 23-year-old led Montreal last season with 65 points in 79 games and was second in goal-scoring with 33 goals, two fewer than teammate Erik Cole.

Last month he signed a six-year contract extension with the Canadiens worth US$27-million, an average of $4.5 million per season.

The six-foot-two, 210-pound Connecticut native sustained a fractured neck and a concussion in March 2011 after taking a hit from Boston's Zdeno Chara, but returned to Montreal's roster the following season.

Since the Habs drafted Pacioretty 22nd overall in the 2007 draft, he's scored 53 goals and 61 assists for 114 points in 202 career NHL games.
