The Vancouver Canucks and recently acquired forward Jason Dickinson avoided an arbitration hearing by signing off on a three-year deal on Saturday.

The deal will pay Dickinson $2.65 million per season.

“Jason was an important addition for our forward group this summer and we’re pleased to have agreed to terms with him on a three-year deal,” said Canucks GM Jim Benning.

“He’s a versatile player that can play on both the wing and at center and is also a strong penalty killer.”

Dickinson was traded to the Canucks by the Dallas Stars in mid-July for a third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

Dickinson, 26, became a restricted free agent on July 28.

Dickinson has collected 63 points (25 goals, 38 assists) in 221 career games since being selected by the Stars with the 29th overall pick of the 2013 NHL Draft.
