The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with defender Alexander Romanov, the club announced Friday.
The start date of the contract has yet to be determined, given the NHL’s current hiatus, according to the team.
“We are very happy to confirm that we have come to an agreement with Alexander Romanov,” Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin said via a team release.
“Alexander is a young, solid, and very reliable defenseman who is determined to pursue his career in the NHL. He is part of our group of young prospects, and we strongly believe he will become an important asset of our defensive squad for years to come.”
Romanov, the Canadiens’ second-round pick (38th overall) from the 2018 NHL Draft, has spent the past two seasons with the KHL’s CSKA Moscow.
