Today we learned via the Vancouver Canucks team website that they've signed Patrick Mullen.
The 26 year old Pittsburgh PA native was undrafted. He is a 6'0" 181lbs right handed shooting defenseman.
He collected 20 points (3-17-20) in 67 games in 2010/11 with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL.
He also appeared in seven playoff games, recording one point and four penalty minutes.
In 2009 Mullen signed as a free agent by the Los Angeles Kings. He then went onto sign a one-year contract with the Kings on July 15, 2011.

But if there were any doubts that the trade rumors swirling around the Canucks netminder were going to come to fruition, Luongo did a pretty good job erasing them on Friday. Luongo spoke for the first time since the end of the...

While Vancouver Canucks fans patiently wait out a trade for goalie Roberto Luongo, I thought it would be fun to play the I’m Mike Gillis game again.
This time instead of eating as many lobster stuffed tacos as I can and drinking enough red wine to fill a bath tub, I’m going to focus on a trade. The focus of that trade is Bobby Ryan.

This is my final post making the Hall of Fame case for the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees. I have written posts about Pavel Bure, Adam Oates and Joe Sakic. Today it is Mats Sundin’s turn.
I make my cases using the Keltner List. This is a series of qualitative questions popularized by Bill James in baseball, but the same idea works well in hockey as well.
The Stanley Cup is on its European leg of the L.A. Kings victory tour so why not stop in Slovenia to spend the day with Anze Kopitar. The center also took the Cup to his home golf course, on a tour of the city & to church for a cleansing.
