Vancouver Canucks Re-Sign Former Top Prospect

The Vancouver Canucks have officially signed defenseman Jett Woo to a one-year, two-way contract.

Woo, a 22-year-old player, has spent the last three seasons with the Vancouver Canucks' AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Canucks.

During the recent season, he recorded seven goals, 14 assists, and 96 penalty minutes in 68 games.

Originally drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the second round (37th overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft, Woo has been steadily progressing in his development.

Prior to his professional career, he played in the Western Hockey League for the Moose Jaw Warriors and the Calgary Hitmen, accumulating 33 goals and 127 assists in 242 games. Woo's talents also earned him the opportunity to represent Canada, winning gold at the 2017 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.

By signing Woo to a one-year deal, the Canucks aim to retain control over his development. The two-way contract allows Woo to play in both the NHL and the AHL, providing flexibility based on his performance and the team's needs.

With Woo's potential and promising performance in the AHL, this short-term agreement presents an opportunity for him to make his long-awaited NHL debut and continue his growth within the Canucks organization.

Overall, the signing of Jett Woo reinforces the team's commitment to nurturing young talent and underscores their belief in Woo's abilities as a defenseman with a future ahead in the NHL. Photo Credit: Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports
