Alex Chiasson has signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Vancouver Canucks. Chiasson joined the Canucks' training camp on a tryout basis and was able to earn a contract. He had nine goals and 16 points in 45 contests with Edmonton last season. "Alex is an established veteran who plays a physical game and brings a valuable net-front presence to our team, particularly on the power play," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "He's a bigger player that doesn't shy away from the tough areas of the ice and has fit in well with the rest of our forward group so far."

Edmonton's Alex Stalock has the same condition and he may not be available to play this season, so Archibald could be a facing a similar situation. Archibald has not been vaccinated.
