VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed forward Zack Kassian and defenseman Yannick Weber on Friday.

Kassian had 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) and 124 penalty minutes in 73 games for the Canucks last season.

“Zack is a skilled, young player and an important member of this team,” Canucks general manager Jim Benning said in a statement. “He has the ability to impact a game both with his talent and size. We look forward to seeing him continue to develop as a Canuck.”

Weber, who split last season between Vancouver and the Utica Comets of the AHL, had 10 points in 49 games for Vancouver.

Also Friday, the Canucks re-signed goaltender Joe Cannata. He spent last season with the Comets, his third in the AHL.
