This week was all about the baby Canucks. With both Petrus Palmu and Michael DiPietro signing their entry-level contracts, the Canucks have now inked 5 of 8 players from their 2017 draft class. The current success of that draft is unprecedented, so you can’t blame a fan for being a little excited!

  • Staying true to tradition, Petrus Palmu posted his ‘signing my entry-level contract’ photo for the masses to see. Jonah Gadjovich, who had played on the same line as Palmu with the Owen Sound Attack, was excited.
