Vancouver Canucks re-sign defenceman Guillaume Brisebois

The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed defenceman Guillaume Brisebois to a one year, two-way contract. If he plays in the NHL, Brisebois will get $700,000, and will receive $125,000 in the AHL.

Brisebois is a left shot defenceman who has been solid on the Comets’ blue line. The Canucks have called him up in the past when the injury bug has hit, but because the blue line managed to stay healthy, his services weren’t needed this season.

Now it’s time for some fun facts about Brisebois’ advanced stats! His 5-on-5 goal differential was the highest on the Comets this season. He controlled 65.6% of the goals scored with 44 GF and 22 GA. And since it’s spooky season, it’s interesting to note he was on the ice for 666 5-on-5 shot attempts this season.
