Signing alert within the Montreal Canadiens organization

Published July 13, 2023 at 3:44 PM

There has just been a signing within the organization chart of the Montreal Canadiens, as the Lions of Trois-Rivières have just announced this.

Andrew Nielsen will start his very first season with the Lions of Trois-Rivières on October 20th!

This 6'4" and 225 lb defenseman will bring some toughness to the team, in addition to an excellent offensive contribution!

Nielsen has just signed and he is joining the Lions!

Maybe the name doesn't ring a bell, but honestly, it's an interesting addition.

We found articles from Toronto journalists who spoke of him as one of the best prospects for the Maple Leafs a few years ago.

He's dynamic and talented offensively, but it's his defensive game that's the issue for him and that's what's prevented him from reaching the next level.

Nielsen, 26 years old, is a 6 foot 4 inch, 230 pound defenseman!

He was a 3rd round pick by the Maple Leafs in 2015.
