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

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
