The Trade Deadline may have passed but that hasn’t stopped the Canucks from adding to their roster.

Canucks general manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have signed forward Zack MacEwen to a three-year entry-level contract.

MacEwan, who is 6-foot-4, 212 pounds, went undrafted and scored better than a point per game as an over-aged player in junior this season.

“Zack is a physical two-way forward who plays in the tough areas and competes with a high intensity every night,” said Benning.

“He has good hands especially for a player of his size; combined with an ability to deliver hard checks and stick up for his teammates, Zack is a difficult player to match up against. We’re excited to have him join our organization.”

MacEwen, 20, ranks second on the Gatineau Olympiques in goals (27), assists (35), points (62), and penalty minutes (81). His 12 power play goals and 222 shots on the season currently lead the team.
