Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed forward Brandon Sutter to a 5-year contract extension at an average annual value of 4.375M through end of the 2020.21 NHL season.

Sutter, 26, recorded 33 points (21-12-33) and 14 penalty minutes in 80 games with Pittsburgh during the 2014.15 season. His 21 goals tied a single season career-high and was the sixth consecutive season he has recorded 10 or more goals. Sutter also finished with a team-leading 50.6 percent faceoff efficiency and tied for second in the League with four shorthanded goals. In 495 career NHL games, Sutter has scored 98 goals, 87 assists (98-87-185) and 94 penalty minutes with Pittsburgh and Carolina. He has also recorded 12 points (8-4-12) in 33 playoff games with the Penguins.

The 6’3”, 190-pound centre was born in Huntington, New York and has represented Canada on the international stage on three occasions. He helped Canada capture gold at the 2008 World Junior Championship.

Originally drafted by Carolina 11th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Sutter was traded to Pittsburgh in 2012. He was acquired along with a 2016 third-round pick in exchange for Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening and a 2016 second-round pick on July 28, 2015.
