Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed Trevor Linden to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We’re excited to have agreed to terms on a new contract with Trevor,” said Dave Nonis. “Trevor brings the valuable intangibles of experience and leadership to our hockey club and has been a huge part of this team and community for many years.
Trevor’s dedication and commitment is seen both on and off the ice and we are thrilled that Trevor is going to be back in our line-up for the 2006-07 season.”

Linden, 36, played in his 1000th game as a Canuck on April 13, 2006 at San Jose, becoming the first player in franchise history to reach this milestone. In 82 games played in the 2005-06 campaign, he tallied seven goals, nine assists (7-9-16) and a plus three rating.

In 1001 games with Vancouver, Linden has recorded career numbers of 299 goals and 397 assists (299-397-696) and sits atop the Canucks all-time scoring list; 23 points ahead of second place Stan Smyl and 55 points ahead of third spot, Markus Naslund.
Linden is also the franchise’s all-time playoff point-getter, having accumulated 32 goals and 56 assists (32-56-88), 98 penalty minutes and a plus three rating in 106 playoff games with Vancouver.
The 17-season veteran has accumulated career totals of 830 points (356-474-830) in 1,243 games played.

Throughout the course of his tenure with the Canucks, Linden has shown an unwavering dedication to the community of Vancouver. His positive impact has been seen through visits to BC Children’s Hospital, Canuck Place and Ronald McDonald House as well as contributions to other organizations such as Grassroots Minor Hockey, Cops for Cancer, Camp Goodtimes and Raise-a-Reader.

The 6-foot-4, 220 lbs., native of Medicine Hat, Alberta, was originally drafted by the Canucks second overall in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. In 1998, Linden was traded to the New York Islanders for Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan McCabe and a third round draft pick (Jarkko Ruutu); in 2001 the Canucks re-acquired Linden and a second round draft pick in 2002 from the Washington Capitals for a first round pick in the 2002 draft and a third round choice in the 2003 draft
