MONTREAL (AP) -- Andrew Conboy, suspended by Michigan State this season for an attack on a Michigan player, signed a three-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday.
Conboy turned pro with Hamilton of the AHL, Montreal's top farm team, after he was suspended. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound left wing has one assist and four penalty minutes in seven games with the Bulldogs.
The Spartans suspended the 20-year-old Conboy and teammate Corey Tropp for the rest of the regular season and the playoffs on Jan. 26 after the attack on Michigan's Steve Kampfer.
Montreal selected Conboy, a Burnsville, Minn., native who was considered the Spartans' enforcer, 142nd overall by Montreal in the 2007 draft. He had three goals, two assists and 76 penalty minutes in 21 games as a freshman at MSU.
