The Montreal Canadiens will be looking to make some offseason moves to get the team into playoff contender status.
They will be looking at the free agent market and one player they will have their eye on is Tampa Bay Lightning forward Alex Killorn.
Alex Killorn headed to Montreal?
Jean-Charles Lajoie of TVA Sports reports that Alex Killorn, a Quebec native will be a top priority for Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes this offseason.
It is believed that the Tampa Bay Lightning will not be able to re-sign Killorn to a new deal because the Lightning are tight against the salary cap.
Lajoie went on to say in his piece that Killorn is the perfect fit for the Canadiens. He can still play at a high level and he is a very smart player with some sandpaper in his game that appeals to coach Martin St. Louis.
The one thing the Habs cannot do is overpay Killorn, 33, to get his services.
