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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
