The 21-year-old forward joined the Dragons in mid-November and went on to play 19 games for them, scoring eight goals and 13 assists. As general manager Marc Bergevin announces in the press release, Réway will fight for a spot in the team come September.

According to He Shoots He Scores, an out clause would allow Réway to return to Europe if he was not able to get a spot in Montreal's team. However, his agent told the press that Réway will try everything to stay in Montreal. (mso/abu)
