Canucks sign first-round pick Jared McCann

The Vancouver Canucks signed center Jared McCann, the second of their first-round picks in the 2014 NHL Draft, the team announced Thursday.

McCann, 18, finished second on Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League in goals (27) and points (62) in 64 games last season. He was an OHL All-Rookie Second Team selection in 2012-13 after scoring 21 goals and finishing with 44 points in 64 games for the Greyhounds.

The native of London, Ontario, was taken by Vancouver with the 24th pick in this year's draft, a selection the Canucks acquired in the trade that sent center Ryan Kesler to the Anaheim Ducks.
