Canucks sign Carter to one-year contract

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks signed free agent forward Anson Carter to a one-year, $1 million contract on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old right winger bounced around the NHL during the 2003-04 season. He played a total of 68 games with the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals, and Los Angeles Kings and had 15 goals and 13 assists.

The 6-foot-1, 209-pound Carter has also played for the Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins, recording 158 goals and 180 assists in 529 NHL games.

``In eight NHL seasons, Anson has shown that he can score and add an offensive touch everywhere he has played,`` Canucks GM Dave Nonis said in a statement.

Carter has scored 20 or more goals in four seasons, including a career-best 28 goals and 60 points with the Oilers in 2001-02. He matched that point total with 26 goals and 34 assists while splitting the following season between Edmonton and New York.

The Toronto native also scored the gold-medal clinching goal for Canada at the 2003 World Hockey Championships.
