Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have signed defenceman Jordan Subban.

Subban, 20, recently completed his fourth season playing for the OHL Belleville Bulls. This season, Subban set new career-highs and finished first on the team in goals (25), powerplay goals (8), and points (52) in 63 games played. His 25 goals on the year are the most by a Belleville Bulls defenceman in a single season in franchise history. Subban also finished ranked eighth amongst OHL defencemen in scoring (25-27-52).

The Rexdale, Ontario native has appeared in 253 OHL regular season games with the Belleville Bulls collecting 165 points (57-108-165) and 203 penalty minutes.

The 5’9", 185-pound defenceman was selected 115th overall by Vancouver in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

So take a deep breath and relax. The mess may not be fixed, but at least we see signs they're working on it.
