Vancouver Canucks day on PHT (it wasn’t intentional, we promise) continues with news that Jordan Schroeder has re-signed with the club.
It’s a one-year, one-way deal worth $600,000, according to the Vancouver Sun. A contract of the one-way variety is a boon for Schroeder, who hasn’t emerged as a full-time NHLer yet, but he will take a pay cut after making $1.025 million annually on his entry-level deal.
Schroeder, a 22-year-old center, made his NHL debut for the Canucks in 2013, scoring three goals and six assists in 31 games.
Drafted 22nd overall by Vancouver in 2009, the former University of Minnesota star is the current favorite to start the season as the Canucks’ third-line center.
With Schroeder, and earlier Dale Weise, signed, the Canucks only have one restricted free agent without a contract for next season: defenseman Chris Tanev.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
