The Vancouver Canucks have signed UFA forward Micheal Ferland to a four-year deal, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Per Friedman, the contract carries a $3.5 million cap hit through the 2022-23 season.
The 27-year-old winger is coming off a 17-goal, 40-point season with the Carolina Hurricanes — his second consecutive campaign with 40-plus points — and it’s no surprise to see him earn a significant raise from his $1.75-million cap hit of the past two years.
The winger spent the first four seasons of his NHL career with the Calgary Flames. In 321 career NHL games, Ferland has tallied 59 goals and 70 assists for 129 points.
