Canadiens pick up three
Forward Pierre Dagenais and goaltender Jean-Francois Damphousse signed two-year deals, and forward Jonathan Ferland agreed to a three-year deal with Montreal. Dagenais did not score in nine games with Florida last season but had 21 goals and 14 assists in 49 games with San Antonio of the AHL. In 41 minor-league games, Damphousse went 17-19-4 with a 2.92 goals against average. Ferland was the 212th pick in the 2002 draft.
MLS: D.C. United defender Brandon Prideaux was suspended for today's game and fined $250. The league said he should have been given two yellow cards instead of one in a 3-1 victory against Dallas on Wednesday. A yellow card was instead given to Bryan Namoff.
