À when a contract with the Canadian for Kirby Dach?


The new Canadian forward Kirby Dach will soon have to agree with the Montreal club, he who is currently a restricted free agent.

21-year-old Dach was acquired by general manager Kent Hughes on July 7 during the first day of the National Hockey League draft.

However, Hughes has yet to come to terms with the forward who, in three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks, tallied 59 points in 152 games.

“It will be good for me to get this fresh start , Dach had noted, earlier this month, during a videoconference held the day after the exchange. I know I can be offensive, smart with the puck and make plays, but I also want to be that dependable center that plays both ways, brings a heavy center presence and is able to skate. .”

Recall that the CH had first exchanged defender Alexander Romanov and a choice in the 4th round to the New York Islanders against a first-round pick (13th) during the recent draft. It was then that the Habs immediately sent this 13th overall pick and a third-round pick (66th) to the Blackhawks to bet on Dach.

It remains to be seen how much Dach wants to get to wear the Canadian colors. The striker recently had to deal with a wrist injury, he who fell in action on the sidelines of the 2021 World Junior Championship. Then captain of the Canadian team, Dach had to undergo surgery.
