If Peter Forsberg wants to play with Markus Naslund, he'll have to go to Vancouver.

The team announced Wednesday that it signed Naslund to a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed, but agent Mark Gillis told The Vancouver Province that Naslund the deal is worth $18 million.

"We're very pleased to reach this deal with Markus and to welcome his family back to Vancouver for another three years," GM Dave Nonis said. "Markus has played a pivotal role in the success we've experienced on and off the ice in recent years. He's grown to become a big part of our community and he's very important to our fans."

Said Naslund: "This past year has given me time to reflect on my career and where I want my family to be. Vancouver feels like home and that was an important factor in my decision. But our team has also been close over the past few years and I feel like we still have some unfinished business to take care of."

There were rumors last week that Naslund and Forsberg, old friends from Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, would sign together with a team, but signs now point to Forsberg staying in Colorado.

Naslund had 35 goals and 49 assists in 78 games for Vancouver during the 2003-04 season. He is second overall among the Canucks' all-time scorers with 562 points (265-297=562) and second in all-time goals, trailing only Trevor Linden in both categories.
