The Canucks newest signing from today, an overage defenseman out of Windsor. His offensive numbers aren't dazzling for his age but by all reports he sounds like a mobile player who can move the puck well and you'd have to think there's a lot to his game we don't know about if the Canucks were willing to offer him an ELC. Plus, Windsor hosts the Memorial Cup this season so he'll gain some valuable experience there and we'll all get a chance to see him play which is nice.

 

There should be a lot of competition for spots on defense in Utica next season, as Chatfield will be up against guys like Brisebois, Neill, and Olson who could all potentially turn pro.

Gotta admit not seeing this as super sexy so hoping for the JB inside scoop on this one.  Noticed he's a RH other than that not blown away.

Oh boy!  It's hard not to get super excited about this signing.  If it wasn't for the excitement I spent over the recent signing of the guy from the Swiss league, I might faint.  My God,  good thing JB spread this kind of excitement over several days. :lol:

You're right, he'll get working on that Megna-Mcdavid swap right away.

Low risk signing. I really like it. I am quite excited to see him play for the Canucks in the future.

The scouting report sounds really good. "Elite skater", "Joins the rush" and "good puck skills".  From the sound of it we just signed Erik Karlsson.

Nobody said organizational depth was sexy.  I mean, I tried the pick up line "Hey Baby, you've got great organizational depth."  Instead of being flattered she just walked by me all confused and a little wary.  Live and learn, I suppose.

This is pure Gold :lol:

Chatfield's ELC doesn't start until next season (same with MacEwan's), so we're at 47/50 right now. Plenty of room if Boeser wants to burn a year this season and to add another NCAA player like Aston-Reese if he wants to do the same.

Some decent qualities and nice to hear he's underrated. He'll have a long road to become an NHL player, but could help in the AHL next year. Benning went after him so can't be that bad.

Technically, there are five slots open for contracts between now and July 1, 2017.  Juolevi and Brisebois are on sliding scale, so their contract doesn't count against the 47.  Benning can go on a signing binge between now and July 1, 2017 (depending which of the UFAs and RFAs he re-signs or intend on re-signing).

Comes from a very good team that features Vilardi, Brown, Sergachev, Bracco, Day, and Stanley. Lots of highly drafted talent on that team.

 

Interesting that we've signed Vilardi and Petterson's teammates within a matter of weeks. Benning targeting these two?

The 47 is already not including Brisebois and Juolevi though. We have 31 "on the roster" (including injured players) and 18 off the roster for this season which would make 49, but those two are subtracted.

I was just thinking that. Management must have heavy scouting reports on both Villardi and Pettersson considering they are in that range where the Canucks might be picking.

Windsor is hosting the mem cup this year. Guaranteed to have a Canucks prospect to watch in the tournament now :)
