The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Ronalds Kenins, the team announced Tuesday. No terms were released.

Kenins, 22, spent the 2012-13 season with the Zurich Lions; he had 17 points (three goals) in 45 games.

"I think I'm a power forward," Kenins (6-foot, 201 pounds) told the Canucks website. "I go to the net, I shoot the puck, I do the dirty stuff; that's how I play."

Kenins represented Latvia at three World Championships (2011, 1012 and 2013). Kenins also played in the 2010 World Junior Championship with four points (two goals) in six games.

"I'm still a young guy," Kenins said. "I look [to] the older guys and how to play and I try to be like them."

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
