Spitfires’ DiPietro signs with Canucks


Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed goaltender Michael DiPietro to a three-year, entry-level contract.

DiPietro, 18, recently completed his third season with the Windsor Spitfires, posting a record of 29-21-3-1 along with a .910 save percentage (t-fourth in OHL) and a 2.79 GAA (third in OHL) en route to being named OHL Goaltender of the Year. The 6-foot, 200Ib. goaltender also registered seven shutouts which led the OHL and established a new Spitfires single season record surpassing the mark of six he previously set in 2016-17.

On the international stage, the Amherstburg, Ont. native was a member of Team Canada for the 2018 IIHF World Championship. He also represented Team OHL at the 2017 CIBC Canada Russia Series.

DiPietro was drafted by Vancouver in the third round, 64th overall, at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
