We'll miss him — and also the pizza memes.
The free agent, who hails from Victoriaville, signed a six-year $5.5 million deal with the Los Angeles Kings.
In a July 29 Instagram post, Danault thanked Canadiens CEO Geoff Molson and general manager Marc Bergevin, as well as his wife and son. He also thanks Habs fans for their "energy and passion."
"My teammates [have] been unreal to me [the] last five years, we've been through everything and could not wish for a better group," he wrote, thanking his teammates for the memories they've created during his time on the Canadiens, including their historic Stanley Cup final run.
It's not the first time Danault has played for another NHL team. In 2011, Danault was drafted as the 26th pick for the Chicago Blackhawks before being traded to the Canadiens in 2016.
The Quebec native was known for his tradition of eating pizza after Habs wins. We'll miss you, 24!
