Here are the details of his new contract. He would pocket 50,000 750,000 if he played in the NHL and 175,000 if he played in the American League.
Montreal Canadians have signed Lucas Vezdemo back to a one-year, two-way contract extension ($ 750K NHL / $ 175K AHL / $ 215K guarantee). The 25-year-old has scored 13 points in 27 GP with Laval Rocket (AHL) this season. #GoHabsGo pic.twitter.com/Zjr3Tncq4R

The Swedish youth center had a good season this year with Laval Rocket, scoring seven goals and six assists in 37 games for a total of 13 points.
At the age of 25, Wezdemo is not really a hope, but he points to credible value at Laval, who could strengthen with a bigger club if given the chance. He played a few games in the NHL last season before the epidemic. He scored his first goal in those seven games. This goal is the final score before the end of operations in the NHL due to the epidemic.
Wezdemo generally shouldn’t have a place on next year’s CH list, as Jake Evans, Ryan Pohling and Jesse Yolonen are behind in the CH Youth hierarchy. If Wezdemo ever did a job in the NHL, it would be no more than a fourth-row character.
In short, this is the minimum signature, which allows CH to be calculated more deeply for next season. Vezdemo is a big part of the Laval Rocket this year, and he will be more for next season.
Wezdemo would have become an unrestricted free agent this summer if CH had not resigned earlier. So any team can get their hands on a 25-year-old Swedish center.
