The Montreal Canadiens and restricted free agent center Phillip Danault agreed to terms on a three-year contract, the team announced on Sunday.

The deal will average $3.083 million per year, after Danault made $832,500 last season. The agreement removes the need for an arbitration hearing, which was scheduled for this Friday.

Danault, 25, played 52 games for the Canadiens last season, finishing with eight goals and 17 assists.

He was a first-round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2011, and was traded to Montreal in February 2016. In 155 games across three seasons with Montreal, Danault has 70 points (24 goals, 46 assists) and has averaged 15:31 of ice time.

The Canadiens have reached deals with both of their players who elected arbitration, having signed Joel Armia to a one-year, $1.85 million contract on Friday.
