The Vancouver Canucks signed forward Brandon Sutter to a five-year deal Tuesday worth an average annual value of $4.375 million.

The Canucks acquired Sutter last week in a trade with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Canucks sent forward Nick Bonino and defenceman Adam Clendening as well as a 2016 second-round pick to the Penguins for Sutter and a third-rounder.

The 26-year-old scored 21 goals and 12 assists in 80 games with the Penguins last season.

Originally selected 11th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2007 NHL Draft, Sutter has scored 98 goals and 87 assists in 495 career games with the two clubs. The Penguins acquired him from Carolina in the deal that sent Jordan Staal to the Hurricanes.

Sutter had one year remaining on a two-year deal he signed with the Penguins prior to the 2014-15 season worth an average annual value of $3.3 million. He was slated to become an unrestricted free agent after this coming season.
