VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks added some depth at centre by signing veteran Andrew Ebbett to a contract Tuesday.

Ebbett, 28, played in 33 games for the Phoenix Coyotes last year, collecting two goals and three assists.

The five-foot-nine, 174-pound Calgary native has played parts of four seasons with Anaheim, Chicago, Minnesota and Phoenix. In 145 career games, Ebbett has recorded 41 points (19-22) and 38 penalty minutes.

Vancouver already has centres Henrik Sedin, Ryan Kesler, Manny Malhotra, Cody Hodgson and Maxim Lapierre under contract.
