Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Wednesday that the team has agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension with forward Brendan Gallagher (until the end of the 2026-27 season). The deal has an average annual value of $6.5 million.

Gallagher, 28, collected 43 points in 59 games with the Canadiens in 2019-20. His 22 goals (including 21 at even strength) ranked him first among his teammates – tied with Tomas Tatar – for a third straight season. He also added 21 helpers to reach the 40-point plateau for a third straight campaign. Gallagher skated in nine playoff games and tallied four points (1 goal, 3 assists). The alternate captain led the team this season in shots (226) and first goals (5), and ranked second with a +9 differential.

In eight NHL seasons with the Canadiens, Gallagher has registered 334 points (173 goals, 161 assists) in 547 regular season games. With 173 tallies with Montreal, the Edmonton, AB native ranks 17th in goals scored in team history among wingers, and 30th among all players. Gallagher has also amassed 25 points (11 goals, 14 assists) in 49 career NHL playoff games. He was selected to the All-Star Rookie Team in 2012-13.

Before joining the professional ranks, the 5’9”, 181 lbs right winger played four seasons with the Vancouver Giants in the WHL (from 2008-09 to 2011-12). He concluded his junior stint with an impressive 1.15 PPG average after tallying 136 goals and 280 points in 244 regular season games. Gallagher also served 359 penalty minutes and posted a +84 differential with the Giants. He added 36 points (19 goals, 17 assists) in 42 playoff games in the WHL.

Gallagher was selected in the fifth round (147th overall) by the Canadiens at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. On the international stage, he scored three goals and added as many helpers in six games at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship with Team Canada. He also represented Canada at the 2016 World Championship where he collected two goals and five points in ten games.
