Quinn Hughes time begins!

Post by SKYO » Sun Mar 10, 2019 3:24 pm

Welcome to the #Canucks Quinn Hughes!

Last year’s 7th overall pick signs a three-year entry-level contract with Vancouver.


Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed defenceman Quinn Hughes to a three-year, entry-level contract.

"Quinn is an exceptional skater, strong on the puck and plays with creativity and vision," said Benning. "He was a leader on his team at the University of Michigan and has had success at the international level. We're excited for Quinn to join our team and continue to grow his game as a member of the Vancouver Canucks."

Hughes, 19, completed his second collegiate season with the University of Michigan Wolverines of the NCAA Big Ten Conference. He ranked first on the team in scoring with 33 points (5-28-33) in 32 games played this season, following up a rookie campaign of 29 points (5-24-29) in 37 games.

On the international stage, Hughes participated in the 2018 and 2019 IIHF World Junior Championships, helping Team USA to a silver medal in 2019 as an Assistant Captain.

The 5-10, 170-pound defenceman was drafted by Vancouver 7th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. Hughes will to travel to Vancouver on Tuesday.

At this point in the season, I would have to agree with you.

It will be interesting to see if any new approach is planned on PP - or maybe the team has just been practicing and waiting for a QB to show up?

And even if not, it's not like we're fighting for a playoff spot and can't take any chances, rite? :) Besides, GMJB needs to generate some excitement for next year's season ticket sales drive!

Confirmed he will be on a Tuesday plane, arriving afternoon. No word if he will play Wednesday. They want him to have his medical and look at the foot. No fracture but they just want to be safe. Not expressing concern just due diligence.

Will it be:

A:
Everybody's building ships and boats
Some are building monuments, others are jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy
or B:
Let me do what I wanna do, I can't decide 'em all
Just tell me where to put 'em and I'll tell you who to call
Nobody can get no sleep, there's someone on everyone's toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna wanna doze
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I am excited. But I am fearful that Travis Green, who has proven this season is not very good at his job, will try and beat QH into submission. QH is not your everyday defenseman. We may have a square peg round hole situation.

If Green puts up with the circus that our defence is I’m sure he can put with Hughes unorthodox style. If he gets all Goldobin on him then he has to go
