The Canadiens have signed former college goaltender Mike Condon to a two year contract. Condon played for the Princeton Tigers of the ECAC before turning pro lat season with the Ontario Reign of the ECHL and then the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League.
Goaltending is not one of the Canadiens organizational strengths. At the moment their number three behind Carey Price and Peter Budaj is Robert Mayer. But Mayer will be continuing his career at Biel Switzerland in the fall after signing a two year contract in January. That leaves Dustin Tokarski and Peter Delmas, both of whom are at various stages of development. The last goaltender drafted by the club was 6’8″ Jason Missiaen of the Peterborough Petes of the OHL in 2008. He was subsequently released by the organization. He spent most of last season with the New York RangersAHL farm team in Hartford.
