The Canadiens, who hold the No. 25 pick at the draft, announced Friday that they have signed forward Michael Blunden to a one-year, two-way contract extension for the 2013-14 season. No financial terms were released.

Blunden played only five games with the Canadiens this past season, going pointless and picking up four penalty minutes while averaging 8:20 of ice time. In 54 games with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs, the 26-year old posted 10-12-22 totals with 76 penalty minutes.

    Some good jokes here.

    This one if for the Corsi fans:

    “A biologist, a chemist, and a statistician are out hunting. The biologist shoots at a deer and misses 5ft to the left, the chemist takes a shot and misses 5ft to the right, and the statistician yells, ‘We got ‘im!’ ”
