Canucks sign first-round pick Jared McCann to entry-level contract

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have signed centre Jared McCann to an entry-level contract.

The 18-year-old McCann played last season with the Ontario Hockey League's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, where he finished second on the team in goals (27) and points (62) in 64 games.

The London, Ont., native was originally selected by Vancouver in the first round, 24th overall, of the 2014 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
