MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Friday that the team’s first-round pick in 2016, defenseman Mikhail Sergachev, has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract (2016-17 to 2018-19).
The 18-year-old Nizhnekamsk, Russia native was the Windsor Spitfires’ third-leading point-getter in 2015-16, amassing 17 goals and 57 points in 67 regular season games in his first year in North America. Thirty-one of Sergachev’s points (8G, 23A) came on the power play. He also registered a plus-15 differential, served 56 penalty minutes, and added two goals and five points in five OHL playoff outings.
Sergachev was the ninth-overall selection at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft in Buffalo.
He will be one of 45 players taking part in the Canadiens’ development camp beginning on Sunday.
