VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Forward Micheal Ferland has signed a four-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks.

The 27-year-old's contract carries an average annual value of $3.5 million, the club announced Wednesday.

''Micheal is an energetic player that drives the play and can contribute in all three zones,'' Canucks general manager Jim Benning said in a statement. ''He'll make our team harder to play against on a nightly basis and we're excited that he'll call Vancouver home.''

Ferland was an unrestricted free agent after putting up 40 points in 71 games for Carolina this past season.

He previously played four seasons in Calgary, scoring a career-high 21 goals in the 2017-18 season.

Selected 133rd overall by the Flames at the 2010 draft, Ferland has 129 points in 321 NHL games.

Devils may wait for asking prices on several free agents to drop.
There still remains a number of intriguing free agents available on the open market, including Jake Gardiner, Ryan Dzingel and Micheal Ferland. However, despite having $20.77M in projected cap space remaining on their roster, it’s unlikely the New Jersey Devils will be adding one of them unless their asking price drops significantly, according to The Athletic’s Corey Masisak (subscription required). That cap number is somewhat deceiving as New Jersey has several restricted free agents they must deal with, including Pavel Zacha, Will Butcher, Mirco Mueller and Connor Carrick, amongst others.
