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.
