So, our boy decided to say goodbye and thank you to the Montreal fans by holding a signing session in a Montreal Mall. He was charging $20 per autograph and all proceeds went to the Ste. Justine Children's Hospital in Montreal.

According to reports, Halak will be introduced to the media in St Louis on Thursday - but in the meantime, here's a very cute video from Centre 68 which shows the incredible number of people together with just how sweet a guy our new goalie seems to be:
