The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Pascal Pelletier to a two-year, two-way deal that will see the forward suit up with the AHL’s newest franchise.
Pelletier is on his way back to the AHL after a three year stint in the Swiss NLA, where he helped captain Langau. During his time in the NLA, Pelletier scored 109 points (50-59) in 136 games.
Before Pelletier, now 30, headed to the NLA, he spent several seasons in the AHL, including stops in Providence, Rockford, Syracuse, and, most recently, Peoria. Throughout his AHL career, Pelletier was a gifted playmaker and scored nearly a point per game player.
In 2007-08, while a member of the Providence Bruins, Pelletier posted 37 goals and 38 assists on way to being named an AHL all-star. During his stay overseas, Pelletier suited up in the Spengler Cup, helping Canada win the tournament last season.
