The signing prevents Hudon, who was a restricted free agent, from going to arbitration next month.

"Right now, I'm just focusing on the future and what's going on with me," Hudon said. "I'm a hockey player, I want to play hockey. I (didn't) want to go to arbitration."

The native of Alma, Que., has 13 goals and 26 assists in 110 career NHL games with Montreal

The five-foot-10, 196-pound left-winger was the Canadiens' fifth-round pick (122nd overall) in 2012.
