Blues sign Vannelli

Thomas Vannelli, our 2nd round pick from '13 has been signed to an entry level contract. I figured this deserved its' own thread. Maybe it doesn't, but his stats look pretty impressive in the WHL this season.

I like it. He needs to put on about 50 lbs though.

He is a highly ranked defense prospect, but I'd think Edmundson and Hakanpaa are definitely ahead of him in development and will be more likely choices to take over next season when Jax, Leopold and Carlo are all gone.

Will Vannelli play his own hockey or someone plays for him and he takes all the credit?

If a girl asks Vannelli if that's his phone number does he say, 'Girl, you know it's true?'

Well of course, I agree. I want to see Hakanpaa in the note next season.

Yeah I assume that would be his home next season. He would really have to impress in the preseason to get a roster spot, lul

Jackman will most likely be here next year, just at a cheaper rate. To be honest, I hope he's back. He's played pretty well this year. Just can't go crazy on his ice time and keep him fresh.
