The team on Friday announced that Vancouver Canucks has re-signed restricted free agent Troy Stecher to a two-year deal worth $4.65 million.

The agreement means an arbitration appointment scheduled for July 29 will not be necessary.

"Troy Stecher is an important part of our team," general manager Jim Benning said in a statement. "He's a talented two-way defenceman who competes every shift. Troy has a willingness to always improve his game and is an example of a young player committed to being a professional."

The 24-year-old made USD 925,000 last season in the final year of his entry-level deal.

Stecher tallied one goal and 10 assists in 68 games last year, down from three goals and 21 assists in 71 games in 2016-17, his first year in the NHL. Through two seasons, he has averaged 19:24 of ice time per game.

Stecher was the only Canucks player to elect arbitration this summer.
