Kirby Dach signed a contract with the Montreal Canadiens. The contract will last 4 years and will amount to 13.45 million dollars. Dach is happy after the agreement was made and revealed what ambitions he has in the coming period.
"The four-year deal [will] really help me out in the long run if things all go well," Dach said for NHL.com "… But at the end of the day, it's about winning Stanley Cups, it's not about making a lot of money. Obviously that comes down the road, but it's second to winning.
I'm excited to be here. It was a good first day, a good skate. Good to be around the guys. Just looking forward to the start of camp and getting things going."
Kent Hughes on Kirby Dach
He is a young player with great potential.
Because of this, Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes believes that Dach can reach his peak and that this is a great environment for him. "There's no such thing as being 100 percent certain in this business, but we believe he's got a lot of potential," Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes said. "We believe in this environment, with our group, with our coach (Martin St.
Louis), with our development group and the character of the locker room, that this is a better environment for Kirby Dach and an environment we're comfortable that he is going to achieve good things in the Montreal Canadiens organization.
… We are prepared to bet on it." A couple of years ago he had a wrist injury, but Dach doesn't have a problem with it anymore. "I feel 100 percent healthy, there's really no problems with the wrist anymore," Dach said. "It's completely healed.
I think it took a little bit longer than I thought it would. … I just feel confident and ready to play, just really itching for camp to try and prove myself and establish something in the League."
