Derek Joslin has reached a one-year, two-way agreement with the Vancouver Canucks.

He appeared in 44 games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season, while averaging 10:35 of ice time per contest, but feels there is an opportunity to step in for the Canucks because of the free agent departures of Sami Salo and Aaron Rome.

Defenseman Derek Joslin is getting comfortable serving as a forward.

Joslin made the shift in mid-February in an effort to play in more games. "It's going good," Joslin said. "I'm feeling more comfortable and starting to feel more confident, making plays in the offensive zone. It's very important that I keep my energy going and finish my checks and use my big body." You would still need to be in a very deep fantasy league to even think of picking up Joslin.

Derek Joslin lined up as a forward again in Monday's win over Washington.

He has played on the fourth line, as a winger, for the last three games after spending the previous five contests as a healthy scratch. Joslin had a scrappy night versus Washington with nine minutes in the sin bin. He dropped the gloves with Matt Hendricks in second period.

Derek Joslin could end up playing the wing on the fourth line in Friday's game against his ex-San Jose teammates.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past five games and is willing to play anywhere to get back into the lineup. "I think they think I need to get back in there and get back in the game," Joslin said. "If it's on wing, I'll play wing. I'll play wherever they need me to be. I have a big body and along with Anthony Stewart I think we can create some things down low and take the puck to the net, keep it simple and just get in front of their goalie."
