Ferriero, 26, appeared in two games for the Canucks this season. He has appeared in 32 games with Utica, putting up 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) and 10 penalty minutes.

Ferriero has played 98 career NHL games between Vancouver, San Jose and the New York Rangers, scoring 23 points (14 goals, nine assists) with 25 penalty minutes. He has one goal and six penalty minutes in eight playoff games.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
