The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed three depth players.
Dries was re-signed for two more years. With the Abbotsford Canucks, he had a very good year. In 54 games, Dries had a career high 62 points which was second on Abbotsford. He led the AHL Canucks in goals with 35 and that was the fourth highest in the league.
Dries also spent some time with Vancouver this past season. He played 11 games with the Canucks and managed two goals and an assist. After his impressive season in Abbotsford, it feels like a no-brainer to re-sign him. Dries has nine points in 59 NHL games with Vancouver and Colorado Avalanche.
Brisebois has been in the Canucks organization since being drafted in the third round, 66th overall since 2015. He has only played 10 games with Vancouver in his career so far and which included just one this past season. In 26 games in Abbotsford this past season, he managed two goals and seven assists. Brisebois was re-signed on a one-year deal. He has 54 points in 205 AHL games with Abbotsford, the Utica Comets and the Laval Rocket. (He was loaned to Laval for five games in the 2020-21 season.)
Stevens was one of the players that wore the “A” for alternate captain in Abbotsford this past season. In 68 games, he managed 19 goals and 24 assists which were career-highs. The Northeastern University alumnus signed a one-year deal. Stevens has 94 points and 150 penalty minutes in 233 AHL games with Abbotsford, Utica and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers who are the New York Islanders AHL affiliate.
All three players will not have to go through waivers due to signing two-way contracts. As for the financial terms, the Canucks did not mention them in the press release but according to CapFriendly, Brisebois and Stevens will earn $750,000 while Dries will earn $762,000.
