Canucks Sign Goalie Tyler Weiman

I find it amusing when Cap Geek.com more or less break the news of this signing over Twitter late at night. It's a 1-year 2-way deal for the free agent. 26 year-old Weiman is just shy of 6 feet tall. He was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in Round 5 in 2002. He has only played 16:00 in the NHL and sat on the bench as a backup to Peter Budaj and Craig Anderson during brief stints. He was a member of the WHL Tri-City Americans when drafted.

The Canucks must be impressed with Weiman's past 2 seasons with the Lake Erie Monsters (Colorado's AHL affiliate.) He had a 42-38-5 record with 11 shutouts, a 2.47 GAA and .914 save percentage in 87 games played. His 8 shutouts during the 2008-09 season were an AHL-high.

If he plays in the NHL he will earn the basement $500,000 salary, and will earn $105,000 as the probable starter (possibly splitting the role with Eddie Lack) for the Manitoba Moose, who are sorely going to miss Cory Schneider.
