Canucks re-sign Salo to 1-year extension @NHL

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Sami Salo has signed a $2-million, one-year extension to stay with the Vancouver Canucks.

The veteran defenseman has spent the last eight seasons with the Canucks, and agreed to the deal before becoming a restricted free agent.

He was sidelined with an Achilles tendon tear last season and finished with 10 points in 27 regular-season games. Salo appeared in 21 playoff games during Vancouver's run to the Stanley Cup final, scoring three goals and adding two assists.

In 692 career NHL games for Ottawa and Vancouver, Salo has 84 goals and 280 points.

The Canucks also signed forward Chris Higgins to a $3.8-million, two-year deal. During the playoffs, he added four goals and eight points.
