MONTREAL (A - Goalkeeper Ken Dryden, who left the
Montreal Canadiens before the start of the 1973-74 season to pur-
sue a law career in Toronto, will return to the club next season,
the National Hockey League team announced Friday.
The team said Dryden has agreed to a multi-year contract
beginning with the 1974-75 season.
No terms of the contract were announced.
IN THREE PREVIOUS seasons with the club Dryden was a
winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as top playoff performer in
the 1970-71 Stanley Cup victory, won the Vezina Trophy as top
regular season goaltender in 1972-73, and won the Calder Tro-
phy as the NHL's top rookie for his work in the 1971-72 season.
Dryden, 26, had left the Canadiens just prior to their de-
parture for training camp eight months ago. He said at the time
he was unable to renegotiate the second year of his two-year
contract with the NHL club.
