The Montreal Canadiens have signed former University of Denver star forward Brock Trotter to a one-year, two-way deal.
Trotter had nine goals and 17 assists in 49 games last season with Riga [Latvia] of the Kontinental Hockey League.
The five-foot-10, 180-pound left-winger had 57 goals and 78 assists in 172 games with the American Hockey League's Hamilton Bulldogs between 2007-10.
Trotter led the Bulldogs in goals with 36 in his last season with the team before going to play in Europe.
The undrafted 24-year-old previously joined Montreal as a free agent in 2008, but went scoreless in just two games played with the team.
