The Vancouver Canucks have avoided salary arbitration with forward Dale Weise, agreeing to a one-year, $750,000 contract, according to a report from TSN's Darren Dreger.

Weise, 24, had three goals, six points and 43 penalty minutes in 40 regular-season games for the Canucks during 2012-13. He was scoreless in four Stanley Cup Playoff games.

A fourth-round pick (No. 111) by the New York Rangers in the 2008 NHL Draft, Weise has seven goals, 14 points and 143 penalty minutes in 118 games for the Rangers and Canucks.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
