Vancouver Canucks sign forward rookie Alexandre Mallet

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks announced the signing forward Alexandre Mallet on Thursday.

The Amqui, Que., native was originally picked in the second round, 57th overall by the Canucks in the 2012 NHL entry draft in June.

The 20-year-old Mallet recorded 81 points (34-47-81) and added 132 penalty minutes in 68 games with the Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in the 2011-12 season.

In the 2012 QMJHL playoffs, Mallet had 25 points (10-15-25) in 21 games to help the seventh-seeded Oceanic to the President Cup final.

Details of the deal were not disclosed.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
