Canucks Sign Forward Conor Garland to a five-year contract

Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed forward Conor Garland to a five-year contract worth an average annual value of $4.95 million.

 

“We’re pleased to have reached a long-term deal with Conor today,” said Benning. “He’s a skilled young player, who plays hard, produces offensively and will complement our top-six forward group.”

 

Garland, 25, recorded 39 points (12-27-39) and 26 penalty minutes in 49 games with Arizona last season, leading the team in assists (27) and ranking third in points (39). He tallied a career-high in goals (22) during the 2019.20 season, leading all Coyotes skaters in that category.

 

The 5’10”, 165-pound forward has played three NHL seasons with Arizona, collecting 96 points (47-49-96) in 164 career games played. In eight career postseason games, Garland has registered an additional two points (1-1-2).

 

A native of Scituate, Massachusetts, Garland represented Team USA at the 2021 IIHF World Championship, leading the team in goals (6), assists (7), and points (13) enroute to a bronze medal.

 

Garland was originally selected by Arizona in the fifth round, 123rd overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
