Canadiens re-sign Alexei Emelin (2 years, $2M cap hit)

http://canadiens.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=636590

MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Saturday the signing of defenseman Alexei Emelin to a two-year contract (2012-13 and 2013-14). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The 6’2’’, 219 lbs defenseman completed his first season with the Canadiens in the NHL in 2011-12. Emelin, 26, recorded seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 67 games, tallying one of his goals on the penalty kill. He added 62 shots on goal and served 30 penalty minutes, and averaged 17:17 of ice time per game. Emelin led the Canadiens with 236 hits, ranking first among NHL rookie defensemen and fourth among league defensemen. He blocked 88 shots, finishing sixth among rookie defensemen in the NHL.

Following the NHL regular season schedule, Emelin helped the Russian team earn a gold medal at the IIHF World Hockey Championship played in Scandinavia from May 4 to 20, 2012. In the nine games he played, Emelin recorded four points (2 goals, 2 assists) and served four penalty minutes. He scored one game-winning goal and another one on the powerplay, recorded 13 shots on goal, with a +12 plus/minus ratio and 18:35 of ice time per game.

A native of Togliatti, USSR, Emelin was the Canadiens’ second pick (third round, 84th overall) at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

It is scary to think this guy hits like Kasparaitis + has great skating, offensive vision and passing abilities.

Not true. The only instance after which I saw Emelin being more cautious was after the accidental hit on his teammate.

Emelin calmed down towards the end of the season because he had a shoulder injury, that's all.

It was his decision to switch to "Emelin". He was "Yemelin" during preseason.

I don't understand why this punk is so beloved here. He's just as dirty as some of the players that get a bad rap, he's just Ulf junior

I didn't know this.

If only Montreal media would interview or do showcases on Emelin, Bourque and our other lesser-known players. But I guess hearing about Hal Gill's BBQ plans is just as important.

********. He's one of the cleanest hitters in the league. Never leave his feet, never boards excessively, doesn't charge - he doesn't even fight. You're groundless.

Strange that an article on the Habs official site would categorize Finland as Scandinavia. Oh well..

The best part about Emelin is that at times last year he was playing on his off side.

I know he's not that ''young'' but to bring in a completely inexperienced d-man like him and have him be able to play on his off side is pretty damn impressive.

Really looking forward to seeing him in a Habs jersey for the next 2 years. I love the idea of him pairing up with any one of Markov, Gorges, or Subban.

Lots of possibilities.

I think this is a common mistake bec of the proximity and history, but /I guess Nordic countries is the proper term.

Eh, I think 90 percent, or more of North America assumes Finland is part of Scandinavia.

Cap hit is 2 mill.

Dirty? Have you watched the guy play? Apparently not.
