Canadiens top insider doubles down on the signing of star Cole Caufield

Published January 24, 2023 at 2:42 PM

On the podcast "La Dose", TVA Sports reporter Renaud Lavoie announced an important development regarding Cole Caufield's upcoming contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Remember that yesterday, former NHL player and general manager of the Drummondville Voltigeurs, Philippe Boucher, had mentioned that the contract of the CH number 22 would already be signed:

"When I see Pat Brisson, in the middle of this signing there, in the decision to have him operated on, in the choice of doctor, it confirms one thing to me, Caufield is already signed. We'll wait to announce it until the timing is right, but Pat Brisson made sure [that there is an agreement]." - Philippe Boucher

Today, it's Renaud Lavoie's turn to add, as he indicates that an agreement would be very close to being realized:

"[Caufield and the CH] are only one call away from it becoming a reality." - Renaud Lavoie

So it would really be imminent that an announcement is made by the Habs on this subject.

Some sources say that the amount would already be settled and that only a few details would be left to settle on the agreement with the young star of the team.

One thing is certain, the fact that Caufield dared to withdraw from the action, despite the fact that "technically" he could continue to play to increase his value, indicates that the organization has already outlined the new agreement with its young star, so that he agrees to end his season in a hurry.

We look forward to the final details of this new contract.
