The Vancouver Canucks have signed right wing Guillaume Desbiens, bringing back the tough 27-year-old to the organization after a short stint with the Flames.

No terms were disclosed, but we’ll go ahead and assume it’s a two-way deal.

In 2011-12, Desbiens registered 14 points (3-11-14) and 114 penalty minutes in 59 games with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL and 25 penalty minutes in 10 games with the Flames.

Desbiens isn’t the most terrifying of tough guys, but his lengthy fight card suggests he’s game to drop the gloves when called upon.

      Desbiens won’t get near the Canucks lineup, unless there’s some kind of miracle and a new CBA is in place before all the exhibition games have been canceled..
