(VANCOUVER) — Goalie Ryan Miller signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday. The 33-year-old Miller joins a Canucks team that traded away its franchise goalie Roberto Luongo last season.
“I felt it was important to get a goalie with experience,” Canucks general manager Jim Benning said. “Over the years, he’s played a lot of games. He gives us that experience that we need.”
Miller, who is a Vezina Trophy winner, has played 11 NHL seasons between Buffalo and St. Louis. During that time, he has compiled a 294-194-58 record, a .915 save percentage, and a 2.59 goals-against average.
