Mike Zalewski has agreed to terms with Straubing of the German league.

Zalewski had five goals and 18 points in 54 AHL contests last season. He also appeared in a single game with the Vancouver Canucks. The 24-year-old has two assists in six career NHL contests.

Michael Chaput has signed a one-year, $687,500 contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

That's up from $600,000 in 2016-17. He had four goals and nine points in 68 games last season. He filed for salary arbitration, so this signing avoids a hearing.
Jul 14 - 12:25 AM

Evan McEneny has agreed to a two-year, two-way contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

McEneny had eight goals and 23 points in 64 AHL games in 2016-17. He also got his first taste of the NHL on Feb. 25 and logged 15:08 minutes in that debut.

The Vancouver Canucks have agreed to a one-year affiliation with the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings.

Kalamazoo was previously affiliated with Vancouver from 1984-87 and then again from 2011-15. Some of that period was before Kalamazoo was an ECHL squad though as they only joined that league in 2009-10. They were previously a part of the International Hockey League and United Hockey League.

Joseph Labate agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

"Joseph provided a physical presence to both lineups in Vancouver and Utica last season," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "He's a big, strong player and provides further depth to the forward group within our organization." Labate had no points and 21 penalty minutes in 13 games with Vancouver in 2016-17. He also recorded 16 points and 80 penalty minutes in 38 AHL contests.

The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Alexander Burmistrov to a one-year deal.

The former Arizona Coyote did not get a qualifying offer and was on the UFA market where he will get 900,000 from the Canucks. He has not been a stud to say the least after being drafted eighth overall in 2010. Look for a 35-40 point season in Vancouver for the Russian.
Jul 1 - 2:30 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have inked defenseman Patrick Wiercioch to a one-year contract worth $650,000.

The Canucks have been busy at free agency as they try and rebuild the team. They get an inexpensive defenseman in Wiercioch who showed some offensive talent in Ottawa. Wiercioch had four goals and 12 points in 57 games with Colorado last season so don't expect much in 2017-18 from the blueliner as far as fantasy pools are concerned.
Jul 1 - 1:23 PM

Michael Del Zotto has signed a two-year contract with Vancouver.

Del Zotto will get $3 million per season. The offensively talented defenseman had only 18 points in 51 games with Philadelphia but look for Del Zotto to get more power play time with the offensively-challenged Canucks.
Jul 1 - 12:35 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have signed goaltender Anders Nilsson to a two-year/$4.5 million contract.

This is a sneaky pick by the Canucks as Nilsson is more than capable in net and could be the starter over Jacob Markstrom. Nilsson was 10-10-4 with Buffalo last season and had a 2.67 GAA and .923 save percentage. Don't forget about him late in drafts as he is a nice sleeper pick.
Jul 1 - 12:32 PM

Sam Gagner has signed a three-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks.

Gagner will get $3.15 million per year, a significant increase from last season when he received only $650,000 from the Blue Jackets. He had 18 goals and 50 points last season but saw bottom six minutes although he did get power play time. Look for Gagner to be a top-six player in Vancouver and look for 50-55 points if he remains healthy.
Jul 1 - 12:12 PM

The Vancouver Canucks are expected to land Sam Gagner once free agency opens at noon ET, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

We knew about Gagner's visit to Vancouver earlier this week, but things seem to be a little more concrete now. The 27-year-old had a career year with the Blue Jackets last season, as he posted 18 goals and 50 points in 81 games. Vancouver may also land goalie Anders Nilsson from Buffalo and defenseman Michael Del Zotto from Philadelphia, per McKenzie. None of these deals can be made official until noon.
Jul 1 - 8:15 AM

Anton Rodin signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

It's a one-way deal. Rodin played in just three games with the Canucks last season because of a knee injury. The 26-year-old was Vancouver's second-round pick in 2009. He won't have much fantasy appeal going into next season.
Jun 30 - 9:03 PM

Anders Nilsson will probably end up signing with the Vancouver Canucks.

Nilsson can make that happen on Saturday when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. He had a 2.67 GAA and .923 save percentage in 26 contests in 2016-17. If the Canucks do sign Nilsson then that would presumably shut the door on Ryan Miller returning.
