Canucks sign forward Desbiens

The Vancouver Canucks announced Monday they have signed right wing Guillaume Desbiens.

The Vancouver Province reports it is a two-way deal worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the minor-league level.

Desbiens, 27, has played 23 NHL games with the Canucks and Calgary Flames, collecting 37 penalty minutes.

"I know what I can do and they know what to expect from me," Desbiens told the Vancouver Province. "If I have a good enough camp and I mix things up, you never know what can happen. I’m looking to make everybody change their mind and keep me on the team.”

In 2011-12 he split the season with the Flames and the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. He registered 14 points and 114 penalty minutes in 59 games with the Heat, and 25 penalty minutes in 10 games with the Flames.

He was chosen by the Atlanta Thrashers at No. 116 in the 2003 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
