The 27-year-old blueliner signed with the Los Angeles Kings in 2017 out of the KHL. While just playing 27 games that season, he played in 46 games with the Kings before they shipped him off to Calgary for a 2020 fourth-round pick at the trade deadline. With the Flames, Fantenberg played 15 games, putting up just one assist and was scoreless in three playoff games.
In Vancouver, he should add some much needed depth to the team’s blueline. The team has reportedly signed both Tyler Myers and Jordie Benn to play more significant roles for next season, but even with a full season of Quinn Hughes, the Canucks still needed more depth to fill out their blueline.
