Canucks re-sign Jannik Hansen
The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed forward Jannik Hansen after he was awarded an $825,000 contract in arbitration.

Hansen, 24, had 9 goals and 15 points, including three game-winning goals, and 18 penalty minutes in 47 games with Vancouver in 2009-10. The 6-foot-1 right wing added a goal and a pair of assists in 12 playoff games.

In 107 regular-season NHL games, all with Vancouver, Hansen has registered 36 points (15 goals, 21 assists) and 57 penalty minutes.

The native of Herlev, Denmark, was drafted by Vancouver in the ninth round (No. 287) in the 2004 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
