Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks announced that they have re-signed forward Reid Boucher to a one-year, two-way contact, Tuesday.

Boucher, 25, was named the Utica Comets MVP last season, leading the team with 31 goals and 62 points in 56 games played.

His 31 goals broke his own record from the 2017-18 season for most in a single-season in franchise history. His 62 points tied Pascal Pelletier's mark, set in 2013-14, for most in a single-season in franchise history.

He was also the team's lone representative in the 2019 AHL All-Star Classic in January, his second straight appearance for Utica.

Overall, he's appeared in 101 regular season games in a Comets uniform over two seasons where he has 108 points, good for third all-time in franchise history, behind Alexandre Grenier (175) and Darren Archibald (144).

He's also appeared in 133 NHL games with the Canucks, Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils where he has amassed 42 points.

The Lansing, Michigan native was originally a fourth round pick (99th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft by the Devils.

Boucher would need to clear waivers in order to be assigned to the Comets.

Other signings:

The Canucks also signed defensemen Brogan Rafferty and Josh Teves to two-year, two-way contracts.

Rafferty, 24, made his professional debut with Vancouver on April 4, 2019 at Nashville after signing an entry-level contract with the Canucks on April 1, 2019.

Prior to that, he finished out his collegiate career with Quinnipiac University, collecting 24 points in 38 games played.

Teves, 24, made his pro debut with Vancouver on March 26, 2019 vs. Anaheim after signing an entry-level deal with the club on March 12, 2019.

He led all Princeton defensemen in scoring with 20 points in 30 games in his senior season for the Tigers.

Both could potentially see time with the Comets this coming season.

Utica's home opener will take place on Wednesday, October 16 against the Syracuse Crunch.
