Awesome signing! Doesn't have a lot of offensive potential but he's a great physical and defensive player! Excited to see how he does with the Wolves!

He seems to have a ceiling of a 3rd line Centre at the NHL level, but given what Gaunce is showing so far if Lain only makes it as the 4th line C, I'll be thrilled. He plays a pretty physical game and seems adept on the dot. No risk signing by Gillis, finally!

Yep, sounds like it.

Should be a great fourth line role player for them. Hopefully he can lace up for the Wolves rematch against Rockford, and rough those punks up.

Brian Boyle/Paul Gaustad kinda guy.

Huge, great skater, shutdown capabilites, and decent puck skills.

Will be a nice bottom 6 center in a few years.

This is pretty much word for word what I have been saying.

I think he will have a learning curve, but could be an NHL regular in 3 years likely.

Was listening to an interview yesterday and he's got some conections to Manny from early on...has taken some direction and derived interest from his game. Watched him as a 10 year old when Manny played in Guelph and has met him.

Liked what I heard...very composed in the interview. Likes to use his size as well as speed in his game. Really enjoys the physicality end of things. Was somewhat surprised at being sought out by several teams and is thrilled to be part of the Canucks...had a conference call with MG, Gilman, etc.

Typical CDC poster. Writing off a 23 year old with size and potential to be a very decent bottom six grinder before even watching him play. 'Ya stats are the only thing that matters. If they aren't good he sucks'

VANCOUVER – The Canucks found a gem through U.S. college free agency in defenceman Chris Tanev and they hope they have found another in 6-6, 220-pound centre Kellan Lain after signing him Saturday to a one-year contract.
Lain, 23, is a native of Oakville, Ont., and has played the last three seasons with the Lake Superior State Lakers of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. Lain had eight goals, eight assists and 111 penalty minutes during the 2012-13 campaign. The Canucks intend to assign him to the American League’s Chicago Wolves.
“He has a good blend of both speed and skill,” said Canuck assistant general manager Laurence Gilman. “We’re going to bring him to Vancouver, as we usually do with new players, to get him acclimated to our organization and he will then join Chicago sometime in the midweek.”
Lain received a $92,500 signing bonus on his one-year contract, which was the longest he could sign for based on his age. He will receive a $70,000 salary (pro-rated) in the American League and $832,500 (pro-rated) if he is called up to the Canucks.
According to Gilman, Lain had been heavily scouted by Canuck senior advisor Stan Smyl, whose duties include watching U.S. colleges.
“He’s been on Stan’s radar for quite some time and we have followed him very, very closely,” Gilman said. “We were in competition for him with a number of other NHL teams.”
Lain shoots left and led the Lakers in faceoff wins with 313. The Canucks are in dire need of a left-handed centreman adept on the draw after shutting down Manny Malhotra (vision) earlier this year.
Reached at his parents home Saturday, Lain was understandably excited to sign his first professional contract. He said 10 teams were originally in the hunt for his services before it came down to a final four.
“It was a tough choice,” he said. “Picking an NHL team is never easy when more than one wants you. Growing up in Canada, it’s the same story -- we all want to play in the NHL. Now that it’s a possibility, it’s really exciting, especially coming to an organization like Vancouver. It’s a special city and they have a great team.”
Asked for a scouting report on himself, Lain said: “I’m pretty much described as a big centreman who can skate, is good in his own end, is good on faceoffs, can kill penalties and chip in once in a while offensively. So that’s pretty much how I’m described and I agree. I also like to play feisty. I’ve played feisty my whole life.”
Plans call for Lain to fly to Vancouver on Sunday and watch the Canucks play Monday against Minnesota and Tuesday against St. Louis before he heads off to the Wolves. By the way, Lain played against Tanev “a little bit” in the greater Toronto minor hockey system. He is four months older than Tanev but added that he doesn’t know the Canuck defenceman personally.

This guy likely won't affect Schroeder at all. Totally different packages. Schroeder projects to be a top 6 centre while Lain at best will only be at 3rd liner at best.

Also, AV's 2 favorite things are Defense and line-up flexibility.

I hadn't seen anyone post the CDC article on him yet, so here it is:
Introducing Kellan Lain

He is big and mean and skilled – oh and did we mention big? He is Kellan Lain, the newest member of the Vancouver Canucks family.

At 6-foot-6 and 222-pounds, Lain is an intimidating presence on the ice and instantly becomes the largest Canucks prospect in height and weight after a signing a three-year entry level contract with the team on Saturday. Lain will report to the Canucks American Hockey League affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, in the next few days.

“Kellan is a big, strong center with pretty decent skills that skates good,” said Jim Roque, who coached Lain for the last three seasons at Lake Superior State University in the NCAA.

“Obviously his role on my team will be different than what is asked of him at the pro level; on my team he was asked to score a little more and be an offensive guy, I think he has those traits, but I think he is more of a third line checking center, faceoff guy.

“He is competitive, competes hard and has an edge to him”


Canucks director of player development Dave Gagner agrees.

“Kellan is a big, strong, detailed player; wins face-offs, finishes checks, plays with an edge, is hard on his opponents and skates well too.”

Lain, a native of Oakville, Ontario, spent the last three seasons with the LSSU Lakers, where he accumulated 39 points (21-18-39) and 210 penalty-minutes in 108 games, including 111 penalty minutes in 32 games this past season.

“He hits hard, he is physical, that’s his game,” added Rogue. “He has to play with an edge, play physical and stick his nose in there to be effective.”

At 220 pounds one would think size wouldn’t be an issue, however Roque said adding some weight to his already large frame is a must in order to for him to keep a physical presence at the pro level.

“His body needs to fill out, he needs to get thicker,” said Roque. “He is still a thin kid for a big kid. His body needs to fill out and get bigger if he is to play at 80 games plus playoffs at the pro level.”

In the NCAA, 111 penalty minutes in 32 games is a staggering amount, but Roque says Lain’s size and punishing hits led to referees handing him his share of penalty minutes strictly due to his large stature.

“When you get a five in our league you also get a 10 with it to and he had a couple check from behinds and a couple hit to the heads. To be honest, our league kind of ran him out of college hockey as every time he hit a guy it was a penalty because he is so big.”


As far as off-the-ice, in just speaking to the 23-year-old Lain you can instantly tell he is a laidback, smart guy who comes from a strong family.

“He is a good kid, that comes from a nice family, his parents are educators,” said Roque. “Real good team guy, easy to get along with and likes to have fun.”


And now ladies and gentleman, we present 10 things you may or may not know about the newest Canucks prospect Kellan Lain:

His dad, a teacher, taught Manny Malhotra through high school. “I got the chance to meet him a few times when he was playing in Guelph and he is someone I looked up to growing up,” said Lain.

– He is good friends with Sam Gagner, so he got to know Sam’s dad, Dave Gagner pretty well and is friends with fellow Canucks prospect Jeremy Price. “The familiarity with everyone played a big part into my decision to come to Vancouver.”

– The last time he was in Vancouver he was five-years-old.

– His job this past summer was promoting Bud Light.

He missed almost a year of hockey when a skate blade from an opposition goaltender cut his wrist in a playoff game, which required surgery. Instead of starting his freshman season in the NCAA the next season he spent the year recovering from the injury and joined his OJHL team at the end of the year. “That was really scary, I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to play hockey again.”

He took college classes while playing junior in Oakville, which he was able to transfer to Lake Superior State and will graduate with a degree in marketing this spring after only three years at the school. “I didn’t want to leave school without my degree so it’s really nice to sign an NHL contract and obtain my degree at the same time.”

– He feels the one thing he needs to work on is his strength. “I need to get stronger and bigger, not in height but in weight.”

He feels he plays a similar role to current NHL players Paul Gaustad and David Steckel.

– Off the ice he describes himself as big family man that is laidback and likes to play golf in the summer and also enjoys hitting the gym.

– His thoughts on dealing with all the media requests on the day he signed: “This is crazy, I have never been around anything like this before, and it’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be, but it’s really fun!”

Welcome to the hockey market that is Vancouver, Kellan.

So skating, faceoffs, work ethic and physicality are his positives. He took extra classes to graduate early and that was important to him. Knowing a few of the players in our system as well as meeting Manny when he was younger factored into him signing here. He's been penalized a lot, but his size alone has been part of the reason for a number of 10 minute misconducts so he'll have to be careful with that. And the injury to his wrist delayed his development somewhat so we may see a little more from him with a two way game.

I was thinking the same (ATO and then 2013-14 contract) but Capgeek just added him to this year's reserves with a contract expiring at the end of this season (2013 RFA):
http://www.capgeek.c...s/reserve-list/

Capgeek has been wrong on occasion but given that they waited a while before actually adding him to their page, it suggests that they've done some "due diligence" on this and they probably have things right.


If true, it still shouldn't be difficult to retain him as an RFA.

Definitely expect the Canucks to be watching his progress in Chicago closely, given that they'll only get a portion of a season to see how he adjusts and performs as a pro before they'll need to make a decision about the next contract.

Also of note, Capgeek has added Blomstrand now and his deal will start next season (2013-14) as expected: http://www.capgeek.c...t/?year_id=2013

His deal is the standard 3-year with a 2016 expiry (RFA).

The CDC article I mentioned for Lain says it's a 3 year ELC, but that might be force of habit.

YAH . Boyle with 53 points in best college year and Lain with 16 in same league. YOU DO THE MATH. This guy sucks!!!!


We are comparing his game to a nhl player. Brian Boyle fail miserably to meet expectations as a top 2 centerman. Brian Boyle is pretty much a 3rd line /4th nhl player. Lain is expected to become a 4th line player and it not cost us a first round pick. Boyle comparisons are fair.

LOLz, grew up a Leafs fan. I'm totally cool with that, Honest kid.

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.
