Montreal Canadiens re-sign left-winger Andrei Kostitsyn to one-year extension

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens have re-signed left-winger Andrei Kostitsyn to a one-year deal worth US$3.25 million, the club announced Thursday.

The 26-year-old scored 20 goals and added 25 assists in 81 games for the Habs in 2010-11.

Kostitsyn, who was set to become a restricted free agent July 1, added two goals in six playoffs games as Montreal bowed out to the Boston Bruins in the first round.

"Andrei Kostitsyn is an important part of our group of forwards, and we are happy to have agreed to a contract extension with him," Canadiens general manager Pierre Gautier said in a statement. "As a player drafted and developed by the Canadiens organization, Andrei ranks year after year amongst our point leaders."

Born in Novopolotsk, Belarus, Kostitsyn was the Canadiens' first round selection (10th overall) in the 2003 entry draft.

Kostitsyn also made $3.25 million in 2010-11.
