Vancouver, B.C. Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have signed defenceman Kevin Bieksa to a three year extension beginning in 2008-09 through 2010-11.  In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bieksa, 26, concluded the 2006-07 season with 42 points (12-30-42) in 81 games played, finishing tied for 24th in scoring amongst all NHL defencemen. His 12 goals ranked in the top 20 among NHL defencemen.

The Grimsby, Ontario-native led Canucks defencemen in points (42) and assists (30) and was second amongst Canucks skaters in average ice time per game (24:16). Bieksa went on to play in nine playoff games, registering 20 penalty minutes. The 61, 205-pound blueliner was also honoured with two team awards: the Walter (Babe) Pratt award for Best Defenceman and the Fred J. Hume award as the unsung hero.

In two seasons, Bieksa has recorded 48 points (12-36-48) and 211 penalty minutes in 120 NHL career games played.

Bieksa was selected by the Canucks in the 5th round, 151st overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
