The Vancouver Canucks agreed to terms with left wing Alexandre Burrows on a four-year extension, according to team president and general manager Mike Gillis.
The deal is worth an annual base salary of $4.5 million, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
The 31-year-old Burrows showed off his clutch gene last season by setting a new career high with seven game-winning goals. Burrows has spent his entire seven-year career with the Canucks, receiving the club's "Most Exciting Player" award three consecutive years (2008, 2009, 2010). In his 522 career games, he's logged 270 points (139-131-270) while also capturing the team record for most career overtime playoff goals (3).
According to Dan Murphy of Sports Net, the deal also includes a full no-trade clause for all four years. This deal also comes one day before the expiration of the NHL's CBA on Saturday. Burrows was thought to be looking for a five or six-year deal so it's possible he settled to have some job security.
Burrows racked up 52 points (28-24-52) in 80 games played in 2011-2012.
