Michael Bournival is sticking in Montreal.
On Monday, the Habs announced Bournival, their 21-year-old rookie, would remain with the club for the season after scoring two points in his first five games with the team.
“We told to Michael Bournival this morning that he can start looking for an apartment,” Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien told the team website.
Bournival, acquired from Colorado in exchange for Ryan O’Byrne in 2010, impressed the organization last year during his first season of professional hockey, scoring 10 goals and 30 points in 69 games with AHL Hamilton.
There was some thought he could be on his way back to the Bulldogs this season, but the Quebec native played well during the exhibition season and thoroughly impressed in his first five regular-season games with the Canadiens.
