Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed forward Reid Boucher to a one-year, two-way deal and defencemen Brogan Rafferty and Josh Teves each to two-year, two-way contracts.

 

Boucher, 25, recorded 62 points (31-31-62) in 56 games played, leading the Utica Comets in scoring last season. In 133 career NHL games with Vancouver, Nashville and New Jersey, the Lansing, Michigan native has produced 20 goals, 22 assists (20-22-42) and 18 penalty minutes.

 

The 5'10", 195-pound forward was named Comets MVP for the 2018.19 season and participated in the 2019 AHL All-Star Classic. Boucher was acquired by the Canucks from waivers on January 4, 2017 and selected 99th overall by New Jersey in the 2011 NHL Draft. 

 

Rafferty, 24, made his professional debut with Vancouver on Apr. 4, 2019 at Nashville. He signed an entry level contract with Vancouver on Apr. 1, 2019.

 

In 2018.19, Rafferty appeared in 38 games for Quinnipiac University and collected 24 points (4-20-24). The 6'0", 195-pound defenceman ranked 7th on the Bobcats, and third among defencemen in scoring. In three seasons with Quinnipiac, Rafferty accumulated 60 points (9-51-60) in 108 games.

 

In 2017.18, the Dundee, Illinois native scored 12 points (3-9-12) in 30 games. One year prior, as a freshman, Rafferty was named to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team after leading Quinnipiac with 22 assists. In 2016.17, he became the fifth freshman in Quinnipiac's NCAA Division 1 history to lead the team in assists.

 

Teves, 24, made his professional debut with Vancouver on Mar. 26, 2019 vs Anaheim. He signed an entry level contract with Vancouver on Mar. 12, 2019.

 

In 2018.19, Teves led all Princeton Tigers defencemen in scoring with 20 points (3-17-20) in 30 games. The 6'0", 180-pound defenceman also ranked third on the team in shots on goal (74) and power play assists (10). In 2017.18, Teves finished the season with 33 points (7-26-33) in 31 games, which led all NCAA blueliners in points per game (1.06) and assists per game (0.79). In four seasons at Princeton (2015-2019), Teves registered 85 points (16-69-85) in 126 games.

 

Prior to his collegiate career, the Calgary, Alberta native played one season for the BCHL Merritt Centennials, registering 33 points (5-28-33) in 57 games.

that'll put the roster at 32

maybe nucks are looking to add a second team this season?

they have to move 9 players before opening day

though most of those moves are easy to predict

YEA VANCOUVER MILLIONAIRES !

I really wonder if this will be Boucher's year.  He seems like he's been improving steadily.  As long as his skating improves he could have a shot

Solid Re-signs..    really like Boucher’s shot release, the guy really could be a pp specialist with that alone,. Do hope he gets a couple of more looks in Vancouver with this new cast.. possible Goldobrin replacement if 5here is movement

 

Josh Teves,   Gritty, never backed down on his corner attacks in the couple of games he got with us, smart, heads up , great first pass.

                       Ive been knocked for this, but I really do see comparisons in game to that of Duncan Keith..  As a young man Keith played in Penticton.. similar styles..  hope Teves develops more on those traits this season.

 

Rafferty,   Gritty, tough, Smart... everything we need short of the skill set that Hughes has..  Rafferty I really hope to see this season as well.

Why did they sign these AHL players first before Brock/Goldy? Benning must be enjoying his summer too much instead of doing real work. #cdccontroversy

Probably because they're easier to sign, so why not? #takingjokeseriously

per above, Teves and Rafferty have identical two year contracts. Year one: two way, 700K/125K, 150K guaranteed; year two: one way, 700K

Teves didn't impress me and Rafferty wasn't much better, but Utica depth is always nice. Re-signing Boucher is huge for Utica and I'm excited he's back.

I kinda wonder if he wouldn't consider the KHL if things don't go well in camp and he is waived to Utica which is quite possible.

I think the plan was always Utica with these guys and we'll see about pushing for 7/8 spots next year. Depth is always nice.

These D-signings allowed us to go all-in on fwds at the draft. It appears a nice strategy, as we receive more developed, insertable D this way. Should Big Tree also return, the back end gets even deeper.

unfortunately i think its a bad idea that we didnt draft any dmen u can never have enough we should follow nashvilles d corp recruitment
