The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed defenseman Yannick Weber, crossing another restricted free agent off the list in the process.
The Canucks also announced the re-signing of forward Zack Kassian today, leaving new forward Linden Vey and steady d-man Chris Tanev as their two remaining RFAs.
Weber appeared in 49 games for the Canucks in 2013-14. The 25-year-old is a right shot who’s scored seven of his 11 career NHL goals on the power play. Defensively, however, he has room for improvement. His deal is reportedly worth $850,000.
Between Vey and Tanev, it’s likely Tanev’s contract will be the toughest to negotiate. The 24-year-old logged 20:44 per game last season, scoring six goals with 11 assists in 64 games. A favorite of former coach John Tortorella, Tanev finished with 136 blocked shots, tied with Alex Edler for the team lead.
