The Montreal Canadiens continue to add size to their lineup.
On Monday, the club announced the signing for forward Andreas Engqvist to a three-year two way contract.
Last season, the 6-3 centreman notched nine goals and seven assists in 31 games with Djurgardens IF of the Swedish Elite League. He missed the last 24-regular season games with a wrist injury.
In his three seasons in the Swedish Elite League, Engqvist has recorded 15 goals, 17 assists and 44 penalty minutes in 126 games.
Engqvist participated in the Canadiens' development camp last week.
