Roster Announced – No Contracts Yet – Dahlin Comp’ Revealed

Published

on

Will Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning surprise us at his press conference this (Wednesday) morning with a signed contract announcement for Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes? That would be the hope for Canucks fans, but at this very moment it’s not expected. Are they getting close? I’m not getting that sense from a person close to the negotiations, but I’ll get, and we’ll all hear, more in the coming hours. They’re working on it.

Meanwhile, another contract comparable has been established as the Buffalo Sabres today announced the signing of defenceman Rasmus Dahlin to a three-year contract worth an average of $6-million per season. Dahlin was selected 1st-overall in the 2018 NHL Draft, six slots ahead of Hughes. Both have had defensive issues with their respective non-playoff teams, but their all around talents and upside are not in question. Hughes has a much higher point-per-game output.

Calder Trophy winner Kirill Kaprizov signed a 5-year, $9-million per season contract with the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.

Off-ice training camp activities begin today in Vancouver. On-ice starts Thursday morning in Abbotsford. Here’s the Vancouver Canucks training camp roster which includes the two non-signed-RFA’s:
