Vancouver Conx general manager Jim Benning is well aware of the successes former striker Tyler Tofoli has had with the Montreal Canadians and regrets not hiring him back last fall.
Benning is a special witness to Tofoli’s spectacular performances that have given the Canucks a tough ride this season. Prior to Thursday’s duel against the Ottawa Senators, the man who signed a four-year, $ 17 million contract with Hobbs scored nine goals and 13 assists for 13 points in 10 games.
The 28-year-old hockey player could stay in British Columbia this winter. Vancouver received him by trade deadline last year and hopes to continue his services.
“Our intention is to try to get him to sign. If I had a little more time, we would try to work on this, with the GM newspaper.”Province“If we’ve come to a point where I’m aware of Tyler’s desire to come back, we’re trying to sort it out.”
“He received the offers and we have expired because he needs to accept. We can spend that money.”
The Western Canadian team lost a few pieces after the 2020 playoffs, which included goaltender Jacob Markstrom and defender Christopher Tanev, as well as Tofoli today along with the Calgary Flames. To fill those openings, Benning laid hands on Braden Holtby, Travis Hamonick and Nate Schmidt.
