Trevor Linden Signs 1 year deal with the 'Nucks — Trevor Linden will be back for another year with the Canucks. Sportsnet has learned the 17-year NHL veteran has agreed to a one-year deal in Vancouver.

The Medicine Hat, Alberta-native was originally selected second overall by the Canucks in the 1988 Entry Draft and now seems certain to end his career with the club. Linden has also suited up for the Washington Capitals, Montreal Canadins and New York Islanders, playing a total of 1,243 games for 830 career points (356 goals, 474 assists).

While Linden has never been an offensive force in the league, he did manage to record at least 30 goals six times in his career. His strength, however, was in his defensive play where Linden established himself as a solid two-way player.

Linden also served as president for the NHL Players’ Association before deciding not to seek re-election this past July. He held that position since June 1998.

    $600,000 – not bad for a proven leader who can win faceoffs and kill penalties…

    I think he can still score 30-40 points if given decent ice time 5 on 5.
