The Vancouver Canucks announced Thursday that the team has agreed to terms with defenceman Christian Wolanin on a two-year, two-way contract extension.
Wolanin, 28, has split this season between Vancouver and the Abbotsford Canucks of the AHL, collecting three points in 15 NHL games. Prior to being recalled on February 18, he had registered 55 points in 49 AHL games with Abbotsford.
The 6'2", 190-pound defenceman was selected to represent the Pacific Division at the 2023 AHL All-Star Classic earlier this season and helped guide the team to an All-Star Challenge Championship.
Wolanin has recorded 23 points and 20 penalty minutes in 85 career NHL games with the Canucks, Buffalo Sabres, Los Angeles Kings, and Ottawa Senators.
