MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes announced on Wednesday that the team has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract (2022-23 to 2024-25) with forward Juraj Slafkovsky.

Slafkovsky, 18, played in 38 games for TPS Turku in the Liiga in Finland last season, scoring five goals to go along with five assists.


He helped Slovakia win the bronze medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympics with seven goals in seven games, earning the Most Valuable Player award and being named to the tournament's All-Star team as a result.

The Kosice native was selected first overall in the 2022 NHL Draft, becoming the first Slovakian-born player to achieve the feat.
