Report: Habs have offered Bournival a one-year, two-way deal

With Jeff Petry and Nathan Beaulieu signed to multi-year extensions, the Montreal Canadiens have turned their attention to Michael Bournival.

According to Richard Labbe of La Presse, the Habs have extended a one-year, two-way qualifying offer to Bournival.

The 23-year-old’s three-year, $2.7 million entry-level deal is set to expire on July 1 making him a restricted free agent.

Bournival appeared in 29 games with the Canadiens during the 2014-15 season scoring three goals and five points to go along with a plus-4 rating while averaging 7:53 a night in ice time. In 12 games with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs, Bournival scored three goals and nine points.

Originally a third-round pick (71st overall) by the Colorado Avalanche in 2010, Bournival was acquired by the Canadiens in exchange for Ryan O’Byrne in November 2010.
