In his most recent appearance on BPM Sports, Drummondville Voltigeurs General Manager and former NHL player Philippe Boucher made a very surprising statement today.

According to him, a deal between the Montreal Canadiens and Cole Caufield is already signed.

When I see Pat Brisson, in the middle of these talks, in the decision to operate him, in the choice of the doctor, it confirms me one thing, Caufield is already signed. They're going to wait to tell us, when the timing is right, but Pat Brisson has made sure [that there is an agreement].

Cole Caufield can continue to play, it's not an injury that's keeping him from playing. But seeing all the players involved in this decision, certainly for me, Cole Caufield's contract, the deals are already done." - Philippe Boucher



Still according to the latter, he says that the main lines would already be written and it would only miss the commas to move on the contract of the number 22.

Clearly, the fact that Caufield dares to pull out of the action, despite the fact that "technically" he could continue to play to boost his value, indicates that the organization has already put the clear outlines on the new deal with its young star, so that he agrees to conclude his season in a hurry.

In other words, the numbers are in and it would be more about finding a good time to announce the contract extension according to Boucher.
