The Vancouver Canucks announced Thursday they have signed forward Alexandre Mallet, their second-round pick (No. 57) in the 2012 NHL Draft. Terms were not disclosed.

Mallet, 20, recorded 81 points and added 132 penalty minutes in 68 games last season with the Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. In three seasons with the Oceanic, Mallet has registered 110 points and 272 penalty minutes in 154 games.

In the 2012 QMJHL playoffs, he had 25 points in 21 games to help the seventh-seeded Oceanic to the President Cup finals.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
