After a strong season in the AHL, the Vancouver Canucks have signed goaltender Spencer Martin to a two-year, one-way contract.

Martin, 26, has been a veteran of the AHL since 2015-16, posting solid numbers and even getting six games of NHL action between Colorado and Vancouver. Martin had a 1-0-2 record with the Canucks this year with a .958 save percentage while also holding a 17-4-2 record with a .918 save percentage with Abbotsford this season. 

With Jaroslav Halak a pending UFA, this opens the door for Martin to be Thatcher Demko's backup next season.

"We're pleased with the success Spencer has had this season, not only in the American Hockey League but also during his stint with Vancouver earlier this year," said Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin in an official statement. "He has been very reliable for Abbotsford, contributing greatly to their Calder Cup Playoff berth earlier this month, and has shown an ability to perform in high-pressure situations."
