On July 1st 2012 when it was announced that the Montreal Canadiens had signed gritty forward Brendon Prust to a four deal worth $10 million, most Canadiens fans did not even know who he was and why he was given so much money for what he brings to the table. The Bleu Blanc Rouge wanted Prust so much that newly appointed head coach Michel Therrien and player personnel director Scott Mellanby even visited Prust at his parents’ house with a Habs’ jersey donning Prust’s name and #8.



This special touch and the fact that Prust is currently going with Montreal-native and former Deal or No Deal model Maripier Morin certainly helped his decision.

Drafted 70th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Prust played only 78 games with the Flames over four seasons, also including a short stint of 11 games with the Phoenix Coyotes, before being traded to the New York Rangers with Olli Jokinen for Chris Higgins and Ales Kotalik in February 2010.

One of the grocery receivers in one of my stores is a Ranger fan. He had nothing but good things to say about Prust, even wished that the Rangers were able to keep him.
