[Signing] Canucks sign defenceman Sacha Guimond (Utica)

Recommended Posts

The Utica Comets have made their first-ever signing after the Vancouver Canucks signed defenceman Sacha Guimond to an American Hockey League contract.

He will also be attending training camp with the Canucks this September and playing in the 2013 Young Stars Classic in Penticton.

Guimond, 22, spent the 2012-13 season with the ECHL’s San Francisco Bulls and then the Gwinnett Gladiators putting up 49 points in 58 games. He was the ECHL Defenseman of the Year and was named to both the First All-Star Team and All-Rookie Team. Guimond was both the points and assists leader in the ECHL

He also played six games in the AHL with the Worcester Sharks and Norfolk Admirals.

Believe it or not, Guimond was apparently sought after by four different teams: the Phoenix Coyotes, Winnipeg Jets, Los Angeles Kings, and New York Islanders. He picked the Canucks because they offered him an AHL contract in addition to a training camp invite


Utica bound but he picked the Canucks out of 4 teams, always nice to win these, never know if he turns out to be a gem
