The Vancouver Cancucks have signed goaltender Joe Cannata to a one-year/two-way contract.
The netminder will get $660,000 in the NHL while earning $88,000 in the minors. The 25-year-old was a sixth round selection in 2009. He was 12-6-2 with a 2.02 GAA and a .927 save percentage in the ECHL and 3-2-0 with a 1.99 GAA and a .932 save percentage in the AHL. "He had a real good year in the East Coast League and every time we called him up to Utica, he played well," GM Jim Benning said. "He really dedicated himself off the ice to get in excellent physical condition and it showed up in his game on the ice. He lost a bunch of weight and he’s gotten quicker and is more athletic."
