Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens Have Just Made a Clear Statement about Samuel Montembeault's Contract Extension
BY ELLIOT BEN JACOB SEPTEMBER 15, 2023 (6:52 PM)
Among the players that the fans were eager to see was goaltender Samuel Montembeault, one of the pleasant surprises with the Canadiens last year. As we know, he is in his last contract year and could become a free agent next summer.
When Montembeault met the media for the first time in a few months, he stated that he would have liked to start discussions with the organization during the summer, but for now, it is not one of Kent Hughes' priorities as he would like to resolve the three-goalie situation first.
These are nonetheless encouraging words regarding Montembeault's future with the Canadiens, and he reiterated his desire to sign a new agreement soon and hopes to stay in Montreal.
With this statement mixed with that of his general manager, the chances that number 35 signs a new agreement with the organization seem quite good, but if he hopes to get an amount that meets his expectations, he will have to shine in front of the Canadiens' net again this season.
