Canucks re-sign Chaput to one-year deal

The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed centre Michael Chaput to a one-year, one-way contract, the team announced Thursday.

Per Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Chaput has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pacific Division club, coming back for the 2017-18 National Hockey League season for $687,500.

The 6-2, 223-pound native of Hamilton, Ontario, was signed as a free agent by Vancouver on September 13, 2012.

A native of Ile Bizard, Quebec, Chaput was drafted 89th overall by the Calgary Flames at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

After skating for the QMJHL's Lewiston MAINEiacs and the Shawinigan Cataractes, the forward - who, by then, had been dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets in a deal for Tom Sestito - he went pro in 2012.

McEneny, 23, appeared in 64 games last season with Utica, the Canucks' AHL affiliate, and he finished ranked second among defensemen in goals (8), fourth in assists (15) and third in points (23). He has six goals and 11 assists in 126 career National Hockey League games with Vancouver and Columbus.

For the Canucks, it's a relatively minor signing, but does bring them one step closer to wrapping up what now amounts to a rather lengthy list of restricted free agents still needing deals this summer.
