Canucks add pair of defensemen

The Vancouver Canucks on Thursday signed free-agent defensemen Derek Joslin and Patrick Mullen.

Joslin, 27, had four points in 44 games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season, and three points in four games with the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

In 114 NHL games with the Sharks and Hurricanes, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound blueliner has four goals, 16 points and 63 penalty minutes.

Mullen, 26, had 41 points in 69 games last season with the Manchester Monarchs, the Los Angeles Kings' AHL team. His 13 goals were tied for fourth among AHL defensemen.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
