Vancouver signs defenseman Alex Edler to 2-year extension

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Defenseman Alex Edler signed a two-year extension with the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday at an average salary of $6 million. The 33-year-old Swede could have become a free agent July 1.

"I've said from the beginning that if a deal was there with Vancouver, that was my number one priority," he said during a conference call. "You never know what's out there in free agency so I didn't think too much about that."

In 13 seasons with the Canucks, Edler has the most points among defensemen in franchise history.
