Fringe Signings (July 29)

The Vancouver Canucks finished up the last of their restricted free agent work with the inking of forward Sven Baertschi, giving him a 1-year, $900,000 deal, which is believed to be a one-way deal.  Baertschi, acquired from the Flames at the deadline, played 18 games between both teams, scoring 2 goals and 6 assists.

Giving Baertschi a one-way deal is believed to be incentive for the team to keep him up in the bigs for the entire season and he'll likely get his opportunity at camp.  The depth chart is filling up quickly, so it could be an uphill battle for the 23-year old Swiss native.  If he does make it, he should work his way into pool worthiness.
