Montreal Canadiens Sign NCAA Free Agent Lucas Condotta



Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens announced they had come to terms on a one-year entry-level contract with UMass-Lowell forward Lucas Condotta that will take effect as of the 2022-2023 season.

The 24-year-old forward played the last four seasons with the UMass-Lowell River Hawks before signing with the Montreal Canadiens today. The 6-foot-2, 209 lbs forward put up ten goals and 13 assists for 23 points in 33 games and was the team’s captain during his final year in the NCAA. During his four seasons at UMass-Lowell, Condotta put up a total of 24 goals and 28 assists for 52 points in 121 games.

The Habs announced that Condotta will be signing a Professional Try-Out with the Laval Rocket to end the year, as his contract is only valid for the next season. Unlike Jordan Harris, who’s signed his entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens effective this season, Condotta’s contract only kicks in next year, allowing him to partake in the Laval Rocket’s eventual playoff run this spring.

Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes used to work in the Massachusetts region as a player agent and family advisor to NCAA players, and is thus likely familiar with Condotta during his time at UMass-Lowell. The lanky forward from Georgetown, Ontario is said to possess good offensive instincts, but lacks a little in footspeed.
