Canucks Re-Sign Aucoin
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) _ Restricted free agent Adrian Aucoin, who led all NHL defensemen with 23 goals last season, re-signed with the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday.
The contract was for two years and believed to be worth $3.1 million.
Aucoin, who also had 11 assists in 82 games last season, broke a franchise record for most goals by a defenseman. Eighteen of his goals came on the power play, matching an NHL record for defensemen held by Denis Potvin of the New York Islanders.
