Canucks' Oliver Ekman-Larsson: Off injured reserve
Ekman-Larsson (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
Ekman-Larsson missed the last 27 games of the Canucks' season, ending the campaign with 22 points in 54 outings, his lowest output since his rookie year. The 31-year-old defenseman should be considered healthy heading into training camp for 2023-24, though his $7.26 million cap hit could make it difficult for the Canucks to bolster a blue line that looked outmatched throughout the year....

Canucks' Jonathan Lekkerimaki: Signs entry-level contract
Lekkerimaki signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Vancouver on Saturday.

Lekkerimaki was great in the playoffs, scoring five times with 10 assists in 15 games.

Selected by the organization in the third round of the 2022 NHL Draft, the 19-year-old blueliner is unlikely to suddenly find a scoring touch when he makes the jump to North America.... See More ...

The 27-year-old didn't look out of place in his first NHL campaign, posting 39 goals, 35 assists, 143 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 81 contests. He'll have a tough time replicating his 27.3 shooting percentage in 2023-24 -- while his goal scoring could be above-average, it's safe to assume some regression for Kuzmenko.... See More ...
