Looking to fill a need at defence caused by the injuries to Andrei Markov and Ryan O'Byrne, the Montreal Canadiens have found some help in the free agent market.

On Tuesday, the club signed Marc-Andre Bergeron to a one-year, $750,000 contract.

Bergeron will report to the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs to get into playing shape, before he's called up.

Bergeron spent last season with the Minnesota Wild. He recorded 14 goals and 18 assists in 72 games in 2008-09.

Prior to his time with the Wild, the 28-year old played parts of his six-year career with the Anaheim Ducks, New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers.
