Mitchell re-signed with the Canadiens on a three-year, $3.6 million contract Monday, Steven Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.

Acquired from the Sabres prior to the trade deadline last season, Mitchell proved to be a useful cog in the Canadiens' bottom-six ranks. Though he only provided one point in his 14 regular-season games with the Habs, he ratcheted up his production in the postseason, supplying a goal and four assists across 12 contests. Mitchell isn't likely to see his role grow as a result of the scoring output, but he should be relatively secure in his standing as the team's top centering option on the checking line.

Mitchell collected a pair of helpers in Sunday's Game 3 overtime win over the Senators.

Another strong performance from Mitchell, who scored a goal in the Habs' Game 1 victory. The 30-year-old only managed 14 points in the regular season, but he's sporting a plus-4 rating in the playoffs and is a valuable fourth-liner who can produce points. With depth players like Mitchell, Dale Weise and Brian Flynn having stepped up, Montreal could be in for a lengthy postseason run.

Mitchell (arm) could play Tuesday against the Predators.

Mitchell has been sidelined since last Tuesday with the arm injury, but was expected to miss two weeks. A return Tuesday would put him a week ahead of schedule, but hasn't been ruled out at this point. His status should be updated at some point Tuesday as the opening face-off nears.

The Canadiens announced Tuesday that Mitchell would miss about two weeks with a right arm injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Mitchell will be evaluated by doctors in Montreal later this week to receive more definitive word on his injury, but it looks like his next game won't come until at least April. The bottom-six forward, who was acquired from the Sabres prior to the trade deadline, was held without a point in his first six games with the Canadiens.
