Canucks sign 7-year, US$56 million contract with star forward JT Miller

The Vancouver Canucks got their hands on a major deal when they signed forward JT Miller to a seven-year contract.

The club announced the US$56million deal on social media on Friday afternoon, ending speculation over the 29-year-old’s future.

Miller led Vancouver in scoring last season with 99 points (32 goals, 67 assists) in 80 games.

He was expected to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2022-23 season.

The Canucks acquired Miller from the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2019 NHL Draft for goaltender Marek Mazanec, a third-round pick in the 2019 draft and a conditional first-round pick in the 2020 draft.

Drafted 15th overall by New York in 2011, the 6-foot-1, 218-pound native of East Palestine, Ohio, split 11 seasons between the Rangers, Lightning and Canucks, amassing 454 points (169 goals, 285 assists) through 637 regular season games.
