The trade was made in exchange for forward Tomas Tatar, prospect Nick Suzuki and a 2019 Second Round draft pick originally belonging to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
In a press conference on Monday, McPhee said the New Canaan, Connecticut native was given a four-year contract for $28 million, or $7 million annual average salary.
Pacioretty, 29, has played 626 NHL games – all with the Canadiens – and has tallied 226 goals and 222 assists for 448 points in his NHL career, according to a press release.
He has recorded 30 goals or more in five seasons and recorded a career-high 39 goals during the 2013-14 season, the release said.
