SC Bern’s Holloway Joins The Habs

Bud Holloway

SC Bern right-wing George Holloway has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Montreal Canadiens.

The 27 year old was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the 3rd round (86th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. During Holloway’s 2014-15 season in the Swiss-A league, he collected 37 points (13 goals, 24 assists).

Holloway’s overall hockey career is quite impressive. Despite having to go to Sweden when the Kings wouldn’t promote him to the NHL after 28 goals and 61 points in 78 AHL games for Manchester back in 2010-11, Holloway built himself up to lead the entire Swedish Hockey League in scoring during the 2012-13 season with 71 points in 55 games. He also finished third with the SC Bern in points with 37 points in 42 games played (including 13 goals).

Holloway is a very offensive minded player who can rack up a lot of points, which is why he is definitely on the right track by signing with the Habs and will definitely have a nice role in helping them offensively.
