The Vancouver Canucks and forward J.T. Miller agreed to a seven-year contract extension worth $56 million on Friday.

Miller has one season remaining on his present contract, so the extension keeps the goal-scorer tied to Vancouver through the 2029-30 season.

Serving as the Canucks’ top-line center, Miller set career highs in goals (32), assists (67) and points (99) and average time on ice (21:05) across 80 games. He had 30 of his assists on the power play in an expanded role there.

“J.T. Miller is an impact player in this League and we are thrilled to have him re-signed with the Canucks long term,” Vancouver general manager Patrik Allvin said in a statement. “His production last season speaks for itself and his competitive drive provides a standard that our players can look up to. He will continue to be a key piece of this team for years to come.”

In 10 NHL seasons with the New York Rangers (2012-18), Tampa Bay Lightning (2018-19) and Canucks, Miller has 454 points (169 goals, 285 assists) in 637 games. Both last season and in 2019-20, he received votes for the Hart Trophy for league MVP and Selke Trophy for best defensive forward.
