The Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday signed defenseman Anton Cederholm to an entry-level contract. Terms were not disclosed.

Cederholm, 19, was a fifth-round pick (No. 145) in the 2013 NHL Draft. He spent this season with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League, scoring four goals and 16 points with 95 penalty minutes in 71 regular-season games. He added two goals, five points and 16 penalty minutes in 21 playoff games, helping Portland advance to the WHL Championship.

The Helsingborg, Sweden native has represented his country on multiple occasions, including the IIHF World Junior U18 Tournament (2011-12 and 2012-13) and U17 Tournament (2010-11 and 2011-12).

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
