Canadiens first-round pick Nathan Beaulieu.
The Canadiens signed Brock Trotter to a one-year, two-way deal on Monday, and also announced the 12 players who will take part in the second part of the club’s development camp, which runs July 6-8 at the Bell Sports complex in Brossard.
In 2010-11, Trotter registered 26 points (nine goals, 17 assists) in 49 games with Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
Trotter, 24, played 172 regular season games with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs from 2007-08 to 2009-10, recording 135 points (57 goals, 78 assists).
A native of Brandon, Manitoba, Trotter joined the Canadiens as a free agent on February 7, 2008 after three seasons with the WCHA University of Denver Pioneers. He led the team in scoring with 40 points in 40 games in 2006-07.
For the development camp, the list of prospects includes all seven players chosen at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft last month.
The Canadiens prospects will first take to the ice on Wednesday, July 6, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The development camp consists of two on-ice training daily sessions at the Bell Sports Complex. All practices are open to the public. Off-ice conditioning sessions are also scheduled each day.
