Vancouver Canucks day on PHT (it wasn’t intentional, we promise) continues with news that Jordan Schroeder has re-signed with the club.

It’s a one-year, one-way deal worth $600,000, according to the Vancouver Sun. A contract of the one-way variety is a boon for Schroeder, who hasn’t emerged as a full-time NHLer yet, but he will take a pay cut after making $1.025 million annually on his entry-level deal.

Schroeder, a 22-year-old center, made his NHL debut for the Canucks in 2013, scoring three goals and six assists in 31 games.

Drafted 22nd overall by Vancouver in 2009, the former University of Minnesota star is the current favorite to start the season as the Canucks’ third-line center.

With Schroeder, and earlier Dale Weise, signed, the Canucks only have one restricted free agent without a contract for next season: defenseman Chris Tanev.

    I almost had a heart attack. I read it as “Canucks Re-sign Schneider”
    I was like “he already bailed on us too?”

      He can come back home to Minnesota to play if the Wild have enough cap space after next year, but they have to rid themselves of some huge contracts with players that are not producing. one being Heatly..
      I am sure he would love to come home..

    AHEM …

    With all due respect to comrade Brough … saying that “the Canucks only have one restricted free agent without a contract for next season” is kind of like RMS Titanic Captain Edward John Smith going on about the beautiful ‘twinkly’ starry night, while his ship is barreling towards an iceberg dead ahead ! The bottom line is that the Canucks need to rid themselves of the 46 million dollar ‘liability’ which is Roberto Luongo and they need to do that now … otherwise everything else becomes a mute point, including these ‘pipsqueaks’ like Schroeder and Tanev. But on that score however, I remain confident that a ‘mutually agreed upon’ termination of Luongo’s contract will be forthcoming shortly, and that all will be well again here in Canuckle Land :) … at least from a financial perspective.

    On the ice however, a totally different story. Together with our ‘excellent’ western brothers like the Sharks and Coyotes, we Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings are going to make absolute ‘mince meat’ out of the Canucks this year ! And trust me friends, no quarter will be offered to these people, none whatsoever. My only regret is that the Sedin brothers will no doubt be caught up in the carnage which is coming Vancouver’s way, and that’s a shame … but ‘C’est la vie’ as the French would say.

    I would take the phrase “University of Minnesota star” as light as possible. More like floater that only skated hard when he had the puck.
