Updates: Canucks sign goaltender Miller

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

Goaltender Ryan Miller has signed a three-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks.

He’ll make 18 million dollars, six million a year over the life of that contract.

CKNW Sports reporter and host Brook Ward says the Canucks need to bolster their experience along the last line of defence.

“He’s 33 years old; it goes against the grain of the Canucks ‘youth movement’, but the Canucks do need someone to hold the hand of Eddie Lack, nurture him along. They want to nurture their young goaltenders and not just throw them to the sharks on a game in, game out basis.”

The Canucks need a proven goaltender after trading Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo in the past 13 months.

In other moves, the Ottawa Senators have traded captain Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars, Paul Stasny moves from Colorado to St. Louis, and the Calgary Flames have signed forward Mason Raymond to a three-year deal.
