Swiss Defense

The Montreal Canadiens announced today the signing of Swiss born defencmen Raphael Diaz. Diaz 5’11” 194 pounds, age 25 agreed to a one year two-way contract meaning that he could play for either the Canadiens or the Bulldogs through the 2011-2012 season.

Raphael Diaz registered 39 points (12 goals, 27 assists) in 45 games with EV Zug in 2010-11. He also posted a +14 plus/minus differential and served 26 penalty minutes.

This singing could mean that Pierre Gauthier is not willing to sign either James Wizniewski or Yannick Weber or it could just be a backup plan for something bigger to come. Gauthier will also try to negotiate a contract with Alexei Yemelin, hoping as early as Tuesday that he could be signed.
