Reports have the #Canucks signing Dane Fox, a linemate of Brendan Gaunce on the Erie Otters. Fox has 67 points (41-26-67) in 35 games.

Megg@megg_fox24m
So very proud of my brother @dane_fox !! Signing his 1st NHL contract with the Vancouver Canucks #proudsis #dreamcometrue

Seems like the Canucks have signed Dane Fox, who has 41 goals this season with the Erie Otters although he is an overager. This may be why the Canucks terminated Polasek's contract.

Got to love a free prospect. Will be nice to have him develop with Gaunce in Utica for a couple years hopefully

They can play in the AHL together next year. Should make their transition to the NHL easier.

Free prospects are nice, but if Mallet and (to a lesser extent) Archibald have taught us anything, you can't really judge an overager until they play pro.

A bit surprised that the Canucks are using up one of their freed up contract spots for an overager. Still, looking forward to seeing how he develops - there must have been something that caught their eye beyond his scoring stats this season. He will hopefully last longer in the organization than Zach Hamill.

Awesome!! Even though Fox is an overager he's still one of the main reasons why Erie's doing so good. Solid signing by Gillis.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Not much on YouTube, only fight footage which seems to reveal a bit of his role on teams before he exploded this year.

Signing these overagers is a shrewd move by MG.

They will need time to develop in the AHL, but this is essentially a high second round draft pick for free.

Late bloomers always have more to prove!

There was even a thread that why is he unsigned. This may also make up for our second round pick that we lost to Derek Roy.

nothing like healthy competition for our top two lines, we've needed that type of push esp on the powerplay, also we may finally be dealing from strength at the trade deadline for once. we shall see

On his first draft year he was slated to go somewhere between the second and fourth round but for one reason or another he was never taken. I was actually livid at the time that we didn't take a shot at him in the sixth or seventh round. That being said, even now as an overager he still isn't what I would consider to be a gamechanger at the OHL level. Not sure how enthusiastic I am about this signing.

Anyone averaging over a goal per game is a game changer in whatever league there doing it in, and as for being an overager, he is only 6 months older then Gaunce!

I don't mind this signing. The otters are likely heading to the memorial cup. Couldn't hurt to have a prospect with that kind of experience in the system. To me, this is a roll of the dice...stir the prospect pool a bit and hope something good pops out.

Didn't he have some injury issues, or was that last year?

What people are missing is that he WAS a London Knight and played with Horvat and is now an eerie Otter and plays with Gaunce.

Experience and chemisty count for quite a lot.

Still have a few open spots to make that 50 I wonder if there is another signing or move to be made.

Either way, I agree this is a free signing. Kid looks ok even for an over ager as it was and his sister is indeed kinda hot

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

I'd imagine MG will probably save at least one spot to try and grab a college UFA like he seems to try to do every year.

Had no idea who he was, did some googling.

Sounds like the kids got solid potential, but he wasn't drafted to a slew of off-ice incidents and issues. Hopefully he's turned over a new leaf and is dedicated to hockey.

It's actually been a trend of Gillis and his scouting staff to like the overages for obvious reason, including drafting. Not a fan of the tactic but we"ll see where this goes.
