Lake Superior junior forward Kellen Lain has signed an NHL free agent contract with the Vancouver Canucks, giving up his final year of eligibility with the Lakers.

Lain is a 6'6" 222 lbs. power forward that is capable of playing both the wing and center positions. He scored 8 goals and 8 assists for the Lakers this season, in 32 games, missing nearly a month of the season with a nagging groin injury. We had Lain listed as the 10th best free agent prospect in the WCHA/CCHA this season.

Lain has flown to Vancouver, taking part in a brief skate and watched last night's game against the Minnesota Wild, but will more than likely spend some time in the AHL before playing in the NHL.
