For the Canucks fans the wait is over as they welcome home B.C. boy Dan Hamhuis, to a reported 6 year deal for $4.5million per year. Last season he scored 5 goals and 19 assists for the Predators. The 6ft 1", 203lb, 27 year old was coveted by many teams.
Earlier today they signed Manny Malhotra to a $7.5 million contract over 3 years. It is expected that he will be the centre on the 3rd line. Last season he chalked up 14 goals and 19 assists for the Sharks.
The Canucks kick started the free agency this morning by signing centre Joel Perrault. It is suspected he will spend time playing for the Moose.
With the arrival of Hamhuis could this signal a trade for Kevin Bieksa?
