The Montreal Canadiens signed forward Jake Evans to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

The first year of the deal is a two-way agreement and will pay Evans $700,000 at the NHL level. The second season is worth $800,000 and will be a one-way contract.

Evans was drafted in the seventh round in 2014, and made his NHL debut this past season after four years at Notre Dame and two with the AHL's Laval Rocket. The 24-year-old notched three points in 13 games with the Habs before adding an assist in six postseason contests.

Evans was one of several restricted free agents Montreal needs to sign this offseason. Max Domi, Victor Mete, Charles Hudon, and Xavier Ouellet require new deals as well.
