    Scatchard relieved to finally re-join Canucks

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Dave Scatchard doesn't appear as comfortable as most NHLers when it comes to missing training camp while a new deal gets worked out.
     The 23-year-old winger, who agreed to a three-year deal worth $1.875 million US on Wednesday, sounded almost apologetic after re-joining the team.
     "It's unfortunate it had to work out this way but it's over with and it's in the past," Scatchard told the Vancouver Sun. "I'm sorry to the people of Vancouver for having to listen to all this stuff. This team has had enough distractions over the last few years. It was a tough situation to have to go through and now I just want to play."
     Canucks coach Marc Crawford said Scatchard did not look out of place during his first workout with the team.
     "It's nice to have him back," Crawford said. "With the style of forechecking that we're going to use this year - we're going to be very aggressive and try to create a lot of turnovers - it's a system that should utilise his skills well."
