[Signing] Canucks sign Colin Delia

Recommended Posts

His numbers look scary at first, but then you remember that Chicago basically plays like a roller hockey team where team defense is not a concept.


Its amazing how porous Chicago's d-system is and yet Delia still was able to hover around .900 save %. Goalies in Chicago were hung out to dry regularly. With some more competent defensive structure (hopefully) in Abbotsford and Vancouver, he might have a chance to shine.

Seems like a guy Clark might make a difference with.

Collin Delia profiles as a goalie who is very athletic, acrobatic, and never quits on a play, but he has really struggled at times with rebound control and his glove hand. Has the size and “length” that Clark likes to see in his goalies, and has the raw athleticism, but could probably benefit from some tweaks to his technique, if not a complete overhaul. 

Canucks just need him for depth/insurance, which he easily provides “as is,” but maybe there’s a chance our goalie whisperer could get something more out of Delia?
