As we reported yesterday afternoon, the Montreal Canadiens announced the signing of prospect Lucas Condotta.

He is an NCAA graduate and was a coveted free agent by Bettman clubs. Condotta, 24, had 23 points in 33 games this season (10 goals) with UMass-Lowell University in the NCAA. He is a 6-foot-1, 209-pound forward.
As reported by our colleagues at Marqueur.com, the excellent Mathias Brunet provided details in his article of the day and took the opportunity to analyze the impacts of this addition.
He mentioned that we should now expect that prospect Brett Stapley, a CH 7th round pick in 2018, will be automatically released by the Habs and become free as a bird this summer.
Stapley just finished his college career (in the NCAA) and had 41 points in 39 games this season. He looks promising, but it's still a seventh-round pick, who is often injured and is already 23 years old.
In short, Kent Hughes and the Habs may release him soon and "lose him for nothing".
A scenario that was fortunately avoided with defenseman Jordan Harris, who signed at the beginning of the week and who will play his first game in a Tricolore uniform tomorrow in Tampa Bay.
On the good news side, Brunet mentions that prospect Emil Heineman, acquired in the trade that sent Tyler Toffoli to Calgary, could land with the Laval Rocket very soon. We can't wait to see him in action.
