Nolan Baumgartner is with the Canucks for another year. Contract length and dollars not known.
Years ago, back when we were doing The Crazy Canucks show, JJ at Canucks Hockey Blog named his dog Baumer (*I think probably because his wife balked at the idea of using the name for their first-born). Ever since, the player himself is like a boomerang… landing in various places around the NHL and AHL for a while, but always flipping back to Vancouver eventually.
I figure he’s always been secretly flattered about that dog.
Update 10:46am PT: Ken Wiebe at the Winnipeg Sun says it’s a 1 year, 2-way deal—
