Canucks sign forward Blomstrand, recall centre Schroeder from AHL

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Ludwig Blomstrand to an entry-level contract.

The six-foot-one, 198-pound forward has played 44 games this season in Sweden's second-tier Allsevenkan league. He collected eight penalty minutes in 14 games with Djurgardens and 19 points (13 goals, six assists) in 30 games with Almtuna, ranking third in goals.

The Uppsala, Sweden, native was originally selected by Vancouver in the fourth round, 120th overall, in the 2011 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
