UFA Signing: Jason Krog

AHL star center Jason Krog has signed a deal with the Vancouver Canucks. Terms of the deal have yet to be released. The leader this past season in the AHL in goals, assists and points, Krog helped lead the Chicago Wolves to the Calder Cup Championship. Krog notched 112 points (39 goals, 73 assists) on 80 games as he drew attention around the NHL for his prowess. Krog had an even more impressive 80 points (26 goals, 54 assists) on only 44 games during the 2006-07 AHL season, also with the Wolves.

An undrafted signing by the Islanders after a successful college career with the University of New Hampshire, Krog entered the NHL during the 1999-2000 season. Krog has played in 198 games notching 21 goals and 37 assists for 58 points including 3 game winning tallies. Krog has suited up for the Isles, Ducks, Rangers and Thrashers.

Only time will tell if the Canucks have plans to make Krog a main part of their offensive corps and return the one-time NHLer back into the fold. We wish Jason the best in his return to the big time.
