Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have signed defenceman Jordan Subban.

This season, Subban set new career-highs and finished first on the team in goals (25), powerplay goals (8), and points (52) in 63 games played. His 25 goals on the year are the most by a Belleville Bulls defenceman in a single season in franchise history. Subban also finished ranked eighth amongst OHL defencemen in scoring (25-27-52).

The Rexdale, Ontario native has appeared in 253 OHL regular season games with the Belleville Bulls collecting 165 points (57-108-165) and 203 penalty minutes.

The 59, 185-pound defenceman was selected 115th overall by Vancouver in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Real excited to see what he can do in Utica!

Knew it, there's no way Linden and Benning would let this guy go.

Still wouldn't surprise me to see Subban traded to Montreal. In general "sign and trade" deals are for some reason thought to be kind of "tacky", but not if that is what the player wants. And I would guess that Subban would like to go to Montreal.

But, if not, he will get a chance to show what he can do at the pro level in Utica next year. Elite Prospects is as up-to-date as any source on player size and they still have him at 5-9. At age 20 he is not likely to get any taller, but it could happen. Hard to see a 5-9 D-man making it in the NHL. Not impossible, but hard.
