The Vancouver Canucks re-upped with another of their defensemen on Thursday, agreeing to terms with veteran rearguard Andrew Alberts.
The Province reports it’s a one-way deal worth $600,000, a significant pay cut from the $1.225 million he made on his last deal.
Alberts, 32, has been with the Canucks since the 2009-10 season.
His time in Vancouver has been marked with extended stints in and out of the lineup, as he’s played in roughly 50 percent of the team’s games each season.
In 2013, he dressed 24 times (exactly half of Vancouver’s 48 games), registering one assist with a minus-7 rating.
As mentioned in the headline, the signing came on a busy day for Vancouver’s defense.
Alberts — who goes 6-foot-5, 218-pounds — re-signed just a few hours after the Canucks brought back fellow blueliner Chris Tanev on a one-year, $1.5 million deal.
