Canucks re-sign Ronalds Kenins

The Latvian Locomotive will be in operation in Vancouver once again next season.

The Canucks re-signed Ronalds Kenins to a one-year, one-way contract today, which means that the 24-year-old has likely earned the right to be an everyday NHL player next season.

After 36 games in Utica, Kenins took Vancouver by storm this past season. He made the most of his call-up to the big club in January, putting up 4 goals and 8 assists in 30 regular season games, while destroying anyone that got in his way.

He is listed at 6’0” and 201 lbs, but somehow Kenins appears shorter and heavier than that on the ice. He is the personification of a bowling ball that showed last year that he can be an effective energy player with some impressive offensive instincts.

The Canucks also announced the signing of minor league player Alex Friesen to a two-way contract worth $575,000 in the NHL.
