Riley Barber Signs With Montreal Canadiens

Monday was the first day of free agency for the NHL, which also included AHL players whose contracts expired at noon today. The Montreal Canadiens announced that they had signed former Capitals prospect Riley Barber a little after 1PM on Monday.

Riley Barber made it clear he felt the Capitals had passed him over, and also made it clear he would not be returning to the Capitals organization.

Barber recorded 31 goals and 29 assists last season for the Hershey Bears. 

Barber was a sixth round pick by the Capitals (#167 overall) in the 2012 NHL entry draft. He played three NHL games with the Capitals.

    Seems there could been more of a test run for Barbs. Hate to see him go.
