The Abbotsford Canucks have signed forward Vincent Arseneau to a one-year American Hockey League contract.

The 29-year-old collected four points and 46 penalty minutes in 13 games with the Utica Comets in 2020-21.

He’s been in the Canucks system since the 2017-18 AHL season and has scored 27 points and compiled 234 penalty minutes in 104 games with the team.

He’s played 135 AHL games with Utica, the San Jose Barracuda, Worcester Sharks and Lake Erie Monsters. Arseneau has also played 147 games in the ECHL.

He was the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s most penalized player in 2010-11 and has earned both a Memorial Cup and the ECHL Kelly Cup (twice).

The 6-2, 221-pound Quebec native was suspended four games by the AHL back in May for a boarding incident.

Arseneau has been amongst the AHL leaders in fighting majors over the past few seasons. The team opens the regular season on Oct. 16 in California against the Bakersfield Condors.
