MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Monday that the team has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with forward Torrey Mitchell (2015/16 to 2017/18).
“We are very pleased to have come to terms on a multi-year agreement with Torrey Mitchell. 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” said general manager Marc Bergevin.
Mitchell, 30, recorded 14 points (6 goals and 8 assists) in 65 regular season games with the Buffalo Sabres and the Canadiens in 2014-15, averaging 14:11 minutes of ice time per game. He scored two game-winners and was assessed 34 penalty minutes. He also played in the Canadiens’ 12 playoff games, recording five points (1 goal, 4 assists).

3 years x $1.9 mil per for Torrey Mitchell in Minnesota.
via the San Jose Sharks,
Sharks center Torrey Mitchell sustained a complete non-displaced Tibia/Fibula fracture (two lower leg bones) in a practice session this morning according to Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson. The injury is commonly known as a Tib-Fib or Boot Top fracture.
The time frame for Mitchell’s return to the ice is approximately eight weeks

But both Wilsons were unhappy about an anonymous quote that appeared in TSN commentator Darren Dreger’s blog on the Canadian sports network’s web site. That unnamed coach labeled Mitchell “a player who preys on the vulnerable” in Dreger’s blog on the TSN web site.
“I wonder if he thinks it’s Torrey Mitchell or the Mitchell that plays in Vancouver,” Ron Wilson said. “Torrey’s penalties have been a hook, a trip — what can you say?”
The Sharks coach clearly had a problem with one of his colleagues hiding behind an anonymity.
“I could make a good guess and I bet I’m right, but I’m not even going to go there as to who said that,” he added, before quickly eliminating Minnesota’s coach as a suspect.
