The Montréal Canadiens made it official on Thursday that they are willing to give veteran D man Francis Bouillon a chance to make the squad for the upcoming season.
They have arranged a Professional Tryout Agreement with Bouillon who will attend training camp in the next few weeks.
The 38 year old has spent the last two seasons with Les Tricolore. He played in 52 matches last season with 2 goals, 4 assists, and 34 PIM.
Much of the reasoning behind this tryout, no doubt, has a lot to do with maintaining another possible veteran player on the blue line due to the departure of Josh Gorges.
