March 2022 – The Canucks have officially signed Surrey native, Arshdeep Bains, to an entry-level contract. Undrafted, the 21-year-old has blown up during his fourth year with the Red Deer Rebels, currently co-leading the league in points with 82 (30G +52A) through 55 games. In doing so, he has become the first player of South Asian descent to lead the WHL in points. With a dwindled prospect crop, this move serves as a clever and risk-free solution to filling the cupboards. He brings an intriguing mix of size (6-foot-1), skill, and grit to the mix and carries the potential to translate into a well-versed bottom-six contributor. Dave Hall
