MONTREAL – CF Montréal announced on Tuesday that defender Zachary Brault-Guillard signed a contract extension until the end of the 2023 season, including two options years in 2024 and 2025.

“After having seen Zachary log many minutes last season, which was new to him, the Club sought to find a way to keep him with us longer,” said CF Montréal Sporting Director Olivier Renard. “We are pleased that he chose to accept these additional option years so he may continue his development in Montreal.”

Brault-Guillard, 23, has featured in four matches in 2022 so far, logging 94 minutes on the pitch. He scored on March 12 against New York City FC. He also played in all four of the Club's Concacaf Champions League matches. In 2021, he played 30 games, including 23 as a starter. In 2,056 minutes of play, he registered two goals and three assists.

Internationally, the Montreal native has six caps for the Canadian men’s national team, making his debut on October 16, 2018, against Dominica in a Concacaf Nations League qualifier. He scored his first goal for the national team on June 6, 2021, in a 7-0 win against Aruba in a 2022 World Cup qualifier.

Brault-Guillard also competed in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup and played four games with the Canadian U23 team in March 2021. He first joined the Canadian program in 2016 at the age of 17.
