VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -The Vancouver Canucks re-signed forward Taylor Pyatt to a two-year, $3 million contract on Monday.

The 25-year-old Pyatt set career highs with 23 goals and 37 points in 76 games while making $700,000 last season and could have become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Acquired from Buffalo last summer for a fourth-round draft pick, Pyatt benefited from playing large parts of the season on the Canucks' top line with twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound wing also scored two goals in the playoffs, including an overtime winner in the first round against Dallas, and added two assists in 12 postseason games.

Pyatt, originally a first-round draft pick by the New York Islanders in 1999, has 65 goals, 135 points and 212 penalty minutes in 384 career NHL games.
