The Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday signed free agent forward Alex Chiasson to a one-year deal worth $750,000.

Chiasson, 31, played in four preseason games with the Canucks after signing a professional tryout contract with the team in September.

“Alex is an established veteran who plays a physical game and brings a valuable net-front presence to our team, particularly on the power play,” Canucks general manager Jim Benning said in a statement. “He’s a bigger player that doesn’t shy away from the tough areas of the ice and has fit in well with the rest of our forward group so far.”

Chiasson recorded 16 points (nine goals, seven assists) and 33 penalty minutes in 45 games with the Edmonton Oilers last season.

Overall, Chiasson has collected 202 points (101 goals, 101 assists) in 564 games with the Dallas Stars (2012-14), Ottawa Senators (2014-16), Calgary Flames (2016-17), Washington Capitals (2017-18) and Oilers (2018-21). He was taken in the second round of the 2009 NHL Draft by the Stars.

He won a Stanley Cup title with the Capitals in 2018.
