MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens added more grit to their lineup Sunday, signing forward Brandon Prust to a four-year contract.

No financial terms were disclosed, but multiple reports state it is worth $10 million.

Prust scored five times and totaled 17 points with 156 penalty minutes over 82 regular-season games for the New York Rangers last year, picking up a goal and one assist in 19 playoff appearances.

Since breaking into the NHL with Calgary in 2006, Prust has compiled 24 goals, 63 points and 612 PIM in 279 career contests for the Flames, Coyotes and Rangers.
