Canucks Sign Jake DeBrusk To Seven-Year Deal & 3 Others

The Vancouver Canucks have made a significant move in free agency by signing winger Jake DeBrusk to a seven-year contract worth $5.5 million annually. 

This bold acquisition underscores the Canucks' commitment to bolstering their offensive depth and securing a key player for the long term. 

DeBrusk, known for his scoring ability and clutch performances, brings a wealth of experience and talent to Vancouver, fresh off a solid season with the Boston Bruins where he recorded 40 points, including 19 goals.

DeBrusk's arrival in Vancouver is expected to make an immediate impact, especially considering his impressive playoff performances and career-high 27 goals in the 2022-23 season. 

Over his seven-year career, spent entirely with Boston, DeBrusk has amassed 134 goals and 125 assists for 259 points across 449 games played.

The Canucks' management is confident that DeBrusk's skill set and experience will significantly enhance their top-six forward group, especially after the club lost Elias Lindholm to the Bruins, providing a much-needed boost as they aim for playoff contention in the upcoming seasons. 

In addition, the Canucks have signed Danton Heinen to a two-year deal, worth $2.25M annually, Kiefer Sherwood to a two-year deal, worth $1.5M AAV, and Derek Forbort to a one-year deal, worth $1.5M.
