The Vancouver Canucks on Saturday signed unrestricted free-agent center Mike Santorelli. No terms were disclosed.

Santorelli, 27, split the 2012-13 season among the Winnipeg Jets, Florida Panthers, San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League and Tingsryds AIF in Sweden. He had three points (two goals) in 24 games with the Panthers and one assist in 10 games with the Jets after being claimed on waivers in April.

In 208 NHL games with the Nashville Predators, Panthers and Jets, the Vancouver native has 33 goals, 59 points and 50 penalty minutes. He was selected by Nashville in the sixth round (No. 178) in the 2004 NHL Draft.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
