The Montreal Canadiens have signed winger Brendan Gallagher to a six-year deal, the club announced Wednesday.

The Habs will pay Allen $4.35 million this season, as he is in the previous year of a four-season, $17.4 million contract signed with the Blues on July 1, 2016.

The 28-year-old Gallagher had 43 points in 59 games with the Canadiens in 2019-20. It marked the third straight season Gallagher has led the Canadiens in goals.

Gallagher added a goal and three assists in nine post-season games.

Drafted by Montreal in the fifth round in 2010, Gallagher has 334 points (173 goals, 161 assists) in 547 games since making his Canadiens debut in January 2013.

The deal, which runs through the 2022-23 season, has an average annual value of US$2.875 million.

Allen was acquired from the St. Louis Blues on September 2 in exchange for a third-round pick and a seventh-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft.

The Fredericton-native has played in 289 career National Hockey League games, all with the Blues, who selected him in the second round, 34th overall, in the 2008 Draft.

The Fredericton native also made five playoff appearances, registering a 2-1-1 record with a 1.89 GAA and a.935 save percentage.

In 289 career games, Allen has a record of 148-94-26 with a 2.50 GAA, a.913 save percentage and 21 shutouts.
