Jeff Halpern has signed for $825,000 with Washington, thus ending his one-year stay in Montreal where he was a valued contributor, especially on faceoffs.
I seem to recall when Halpern was booted out of the faceoff circle in game seven against Boston, Tomas Plekanec came in and lost the draw, and Nathan Horton put an end to the Habs season. Although I’m trying to forget it.
Thanks for your good work, Jeff. Good luck in Washington.
Plus….Jaromir Jagr signs with Philadelphia and I’m relieved it wasn’t Montreal. It would’ve been weird seeing him in a Habs uniform.
