The Montreal Canadiens announced the signing of Michael McCarron to a three-year entry-level contract on Thursday.

By signing his deal with the Canadiens, McCarron will play next season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. Over the last two weeks, he was contemplating between London and the Western Michigan Broncos headed by former NHL coach Andy Murray. 

The Canadiens' first selection at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, No. 25 overall, McCarron had five goals, 10 points and a plus-1 differential in 19 games with the United States National Team Development Program in 2012-13.

In each of his two seasons with the USNTDP, the 6-foot-5, 228-pound winger has led his team in penalty minutes per game.
