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.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
