Habs sign NCAA standout Carr to two-year deal


The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to terms with Union College sniper Daniel Carr on a two-year entry-level deal, the club announced on Thursday.

Carr, 22, was a key figure on this year’s Union squad, the first to win an NCAA championship in school history.

The undrafted free agent led the Dutchmen in scoring this season, with 50 points, and was named All-ECAC First Team and a Second Team All American.

In another move on Thursday, the Canadiens also signed ’13 draftee Connor Crips from OHL Sudbury.

Crisp was the 71st overall pick at last June’s draft and spent the past season with the Wolves and Montreal’s AHL affiliate in Hamilton.
