GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota senior hockey forward Mark MacMillan has signed a two-year entry-level contract with the NHL's Montreal Canadiens.

Terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed.

The standout from British Columbia was a fourth-round draft pick of the Canadiens in 2010. He was named defensive forward of the year in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference this past season.

MacMillan was leading the conference with a career-high 16 goals when he suffered a fractured knee cap while blocking a shot during a game on Feb. 28. He missed UND's playoff run to the NCAA Frozen Four.

MacMillan finished his college career with 46 goals and 53 assists in 151 games.
