• Canucks Extend Friesen

    News: Alex Friesen signed a two-year, $575,000 contract extension with the Canucks on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
    Analysis: Alex Friesen's two-way deal will give the Canucks the option of stashing him with the parent club or assigning him to AHL Utica out of training camp, with the latter scenario being the likelier bet. The 24-year-old provided 10 goals and 20 assists across 60 regular-season matches with Utica.
