The deal was a complicated one. NHL wise it was a 1 year deal. AHL wise it was 2 years. I'm guessing Canucks told him if he signs a 2 year deal in the AHL, they would upgrade his contract by signing him for the 1st year of the deal.

I don't see any other way it could have been done as when the deal was announced it was announced as a 1 year deal with a 2nd year that would be a regular AHL contract.

This way it secured Chicago a good backup/1B goalie
