Canucks re-sign forward Phillip Di Giuseppe to two-year contract extension

The Vancouver Canucks and forward Phillip Di Giuseppe agreed to a two-year, two-way contract extension Sunday.

Di Giuseppe was slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old from Toronto has two goals and two assists in 13 games with the Canucks this season. He also has 32 points (13 goals and 19 assists) in 37 games with the Abbotsford Canucks of the American Hockey League.

“We are excited to have agreed to terms with Phillip for another two seasons,” Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said in a statement. “He has been a reliable forward when called upon in Vancouver this year and has been an impactful player and leader with Abbotsford each of the past two seasons.”

Drafted in the second round, 38th overall, by Carolina in 2012, Di Giuseppe has 57 career points (18 goals and 39 assists) over seven seasons with the Hurricanes, Nashville Predators, New York Rangers, and Canucks.

He joined Vancouver as a free agent in July 2021 and spent all of last season with Abbotsford.
