The Vancouver Canucks have signed 23-year-old forward Michael Zalewski to a one-year contract, the team announced late Tuesday night.
The Canucks had previously given Zalewski a NHL contract when he was signed coming out of college, scoring nine goals and 26 points in 35 games with RPI. He played two games with the Canucks in the 2013-14 season.
Since then he’s been playing with the team’s AHL affiliate in Utica, where he has eight goals and 17 points in 36 games this season. He’s had some nice moments in the AHL this season, earning Utica player of the week honors earlier this month from Canucks Army.
