 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -The Canucks signed forward Cody Hodgson, their top pick in this year's draft, to an entry-level contract on Sunday.
Hodgson, chosen 10th overall, had one assist and six penalty minutes in his first three preseason games with Vancouver. The 18-year-old center is trying to become the first top draft pick to stick with the Canucks since Petr Nedved in 1990.
Last season, Hodgson had 40 goals and 45 assists with Brampton of the Ontario Hockey League, and added five goals in five first-round playoff games.
He also served as captain of the Canadian team which won gold at the this year's IIHF Under-18 world championships, scoring two goals and adding a tournament-high 10 assists.
