Habs sign Kostitsyn to 1-year extension
The club announced the deal Thursday. Financial terms were not available.
The 26-year-old Kostitsyn scored 20 goals with 25 assists in 81 games for the Canadiens. He had two goals in Montreal's six-game loss to the Boston Bruins in the playoffs.
Montreal general manager Pierre Gautier said in a statement: ''Andrei Kostitsyn is an important part of our group of forwards, and we are happy to have agreed to a contract extension with him.''
Kostitsyn was the Canadiens' first-round pick, 10th overall, in the 2003 draft.
