Since the beginning of the season, many experts have been suggesting that Kent Hughes should sign Brandon Gignac to provide reinforcements for the Montreal Canadiens.

It's important to note that the team would certainly not say no to additional offensive power, especially since the departures of Mitchell Stephens and Lucas Condotta, not to mention Brendan Gallagher's suspension.

A New Addition for Martin St-Louis with Brandon Gignac?



Those closely following the Laval Rocket unanimously agree that he is evidently the most deserving of signing with the Habs among the NHL-contract-free players.


Moreover, with the termination of Nicolas Beaudin's contract yesterday, a spot has been freed up, potentially allowing General Manager Kent Hughes to make a move.

«Hypothesis (I have no information on this), but now would be a good time to offer a National League contract to Brandon Gignac.» - Nicolas Cloutier, TVA Sports

Yes, he deserves this opportunity, and it could be a great addition to Martin St-Louis's lineup. Do you think this should happen?

Gignac, a 3rd round pick of the New Jersey Devils in 2016, is a native of Repentigny and is 26 years old.

He has accumulated 37 points in 40 games this season with the Rocket, which is very solid, following a 33-point tally in 49 games last season.

Gignac played one NHL game with the Devils in 2019.

Stay tuned for more developments!
