The Montreal Canadiens have signed first round pick Noah Juulsen to a three-year entry-level contract.

The 18-year-old defenceman recorded nine goals and 52 points in 68 games with the Everett Silvertips of the WHL last season.

The Surrey, British Columbia native was selected 26th overall by the Canadiens and is currently participating in Montreal's development camp in Brossard, Quebec.
