The Vancouver Canucks made their second player re-signing on Monday, inking pesky checking center Maxim Lapierre to a two-year, $2 million contract. Lapierre,26, was eligible for restricted free agent status on July 1st. His new deal is a slight raise above the $900K he was earning on his previous deal, though he also gets an extra year. In 78 games split between the Canucks, Anaheim Ducks and Montreal Canadiens this season, Lapierre had 6 goals and 12 points with a plus-minus of -14 with 80 PIMs, but it was his ability as an agitating checker which made him invaluable to the Canucks late in the season and into the playoffs.
