Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have signed "real good" right wing Jack Skille to a professional try-out (aka puck target offer) contract.

Skille, 29, appeared in 74 games, some of them after a long brisk run, with the Colorado Avalanche last season, registering 14 points (8-6-14) along with 11 penalty minutes. The 6-1, 216-pound forward has amassed 75 points (38-37-75) and 106 penalty minutes, he's got some meat and taters grits there, in 313 NHL regular season games split between Chicago, Florida, Columbus and Colorado.

A native of Madison, Wisconsin, Skille was originally selected by Chicago in the first round, 7th overall (first rounda biatch!) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Right wing Tuomo not Jarku Ruutu, centre James "Def" Sheppard and goaltender Kevin Carr were also signed to professional try-out contracts by the Canucks on September 13th.

 
Finally! Benning's adding some more skille to the forward corps...hahahhahahahha...hahaha....ha...ha......h.......I'm done.

A RW?

 

I wonder if this means even more that there's truth to the possibility Virtanen will start in the AHL

Well it's not like it's a rumor or anything, more common sense. Jake's mind needs to catch up to his body and that's to be expected for a player of his age. Top line minutes under Travis Green will do him wonders.

Common sense in this forum is not that common
