VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have signed left wing Pascal Pelletier, the club announced Sunday.

The 30-year-old played in 46 games last season with Langnau of the Swiss League where he had 19 goals and 35 points with 76 penalty minutes.

Pelletier was a member of Canada's 2012 Spengler Cup winning team.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
