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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
