Center Torrey Mitchell signed a three-year deal with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. 

The 30-year-old Mitchell had six goals and eight assists in 65 regular-season games between the Buffalo Sabres and Montreal. He had a goal and four assists in 12 playoff games for the Canadiens. 

"We are very pleased to have come to terms on a multi-year agreement with Torrey Mitchell," Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement.

"Torrey is a versatile player who has a great deal of speed and experience. He was an excellent addition to our group of forwards last season, and offered a solid performance during the playoffs." 

Mitchell has 42 goals and 63 assists in seven seasons in 457 NHL games. 

He was acquired by the Canadiens from Buffalo on March 2 for Jack Nevins and a seventh-round pick in the 2016 draft.
