Canucks sign Port Coquitlam product Zach Hamill

By Cam Tucker  

The Vancouver Canucks have gone local again, signing centre Zach Hamill of Port Coquitlam in a deal that was announced Thursday morning.

Hamill played his minor hockey in Port Coquitlam, before eventually moving on to the Everett Silvertips in the Western Hockey League.

Hamill is originally a draft pick of the Boston Bruins, selected eighth overall in the 2007 NHL Draft.


However, his professional career to this point has been spent largely in the minor leagues.

In 20 career NHL games, he has just four assists.

Last year, he spent the American Hockey League season with three different teams – Hershey Bears, San Antonio Rampage and Milwaukee Admirals – collecting a total of 44 points in 72 regular season games.

The Canucks also announced the signing of left winger Colin Stuart.

Stuart previously spent time in the NHL with the Atlanta Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres, with eight goals and 13 points in 56 career games.
