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

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.
