The Canucks have re-signed Darren Archibald to a one-year, two-way extension.
Archibald split his 2018 season between the AHL and NHL. He collected 16 points (7G / 9A) in 25 games with Utica (AHL) and nine points (4G / 5A) in 26 games with Vancouver (NHL). Archibald has a power-forwards body (6-foot-3, 210 lbs.) and was the Canucks’ leader in hits/game during brief time with them. He’ll battle for a roster spot this fall, but could start the year in Utica again.
The Canucks have re-signed Sven Baertschi to a three-year, $10M ($3.33M AAV) contract.
The Canucks have signed Tim Schaller to a two-year deal worth $3.8M ($1.9M AAV).
The Canucks have inked Antoine Roussel to a four-year deal worth $12.0M ($3.0M AAV).

The Canucks have acquired Tanner Kero from the Blackhawks for Michael Chaput.
Kero, 25, spent most of the 2018 season in the AHL, where he had 20 points (8G / 12A) in 36 games with the Rockford IceHogs. He has registered 22 points (8G / 14A) in 72 career NHL games with the Blackhawks. He figures to start the 2019 season in Utica (AHL).
The Canucks re-signed Markus Granlund to a one-year deal worth $1.475M.
Granlund had eight goals and four assists (12 points) in 53 games with the Canucks last season. The former second-round pick (No.45 in 2011) fell short of his 32-point (19G / 13A) season from the year before and figures to be a botto-6 or reserve forward with them in 2019.
The Canucks select Quinn Hughes with the No.7 overall pick.
Hughes was the youngest player in NCAA Division-I in 2018 and the freshman played exceptionally well, finishing third in Michigan Wolverines scoring with 29 points (5G / 24A) in 37 games. Hughes also picked up three assists in seven games while representing the United States at the World Juniors. Hughes is considered one of the best skaters in this draft class and brings with him a great first-pass and offensive game despite his somewhat diminutive stature—5-foot-10, 178 lbs
The Canucks signed Richard Bachman to a two-year extension.
Bachman, 30, spent all of the 2018 season in Utica (AHL) where he went 13-13-0 with a 2.98 GAA and .902 SV%. Bachman is the fourth goalie on the Canucks’ depth chart behind Jacob Markstrom, Anders Nilsson and Thatcher Demko, so he isn’t expected to see any NHL action in 2019, barring something unforeseen.
The Canucks signed Reid Boucher to a one-year, two-way contract.
Boucher has a great shot that helps him continue to post strong numbers in the AHL, but the NHL results still aren’t there. In 2018, the 24-year-old winger had 46 points (25G / 21A) in 45 games with Utica (AHL) but picked up just three goals and two assists in 20 games with Vancouver. He will continue to be a quality depth winger for the Canucks for at least one more season.
Schaller will be a healthy scratch for Game 3.
Beagle (upper-body) will draw into the Capitals lineup for Game 2.

Hutton (foot) will be back in the Canucks lineup on Thursday.

Beagle is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Beagle played just 3:22 on Sunday before leaving the game with an undisclosed upper-body injury. Beagle missed Monday’s game and the Capitals recalling Travis Boyd on Tuesday suggests the Beagle won’t play on Thursday.
