Report: Montreal Canadiens come to an agreement with Jordan Harris

The regime of Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton continues to remain flawless. The great momentum for the duo continued after the trade deadline as they signed 2019 3rd round pick Jordan Harris.

This contract will pay Harris US$750,000 per season in the NHL and contains a signing bonus of $92,500 each year. It also as a performance bonus in the final year of the contract of up to a maximum of US$425,000. If Harris is in the AHL, he will earn US$70,000 per season.

Northeastern University’s season ended Friday afternoon after a 2-1 overtime loss to Western Michigan. This season, Harris had 20 points in 39 games as captain. He also won the title for best defensive defenseman in the Hockey East conference and was named to the All-Conference First Team.

It was clear that Marc Bergevin was going to let Jordan Harris walk to free agency after implying in multiple press conferences that he was never really in contact with Harris’ camp. To which Harris stated that he would play for the Rangers or Bruins since he is from Massachusetts.

What changed? Well…the front office changed, which has only been seen as a positive impact. Kent Hughes’ son, Jack Hughes, has played with Jordan Harris since they were kids, and Kent was even Harris’ coach in youth hockey. There is obviously a direct connection there, and one can predict that was the reason why Harris signed with the Canadiens.

Throughout his college career, Harris has played on the right side despite being left-handed, which is great for the Montreal Canadiens. Versatility on the blue line is never a bad thing.

It’s another exciting time for Montreal Canadiens fans as in the coming games. They will get to see newly acquired defenceman from the Colorado Avalanche Justin Barron and newly signed defenceman Jordan Harris.
