Vancouver Canucks forward Dakota Joshua agreed to terms on a four-year, $13 million contract on Thursday.

Joshua, 28, recorded career-high totals in goals (18), assists (14) and points (32) to go along with a plus-19 rating in 63 games last season.

"Dakota had a strong season for us and took some big steps forward in his game," Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said. "We really like his size, his speed and physicality. He fit in well with our system and the way we want to play hockey and I look forward to watching him to continue to develop under our coaching staff."

Joshua has totaled 64 points (33 goals, 31 assists) in 184 career games with the St. Louis Blues and Canucks.

He was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the fifth round of the 2014 NHL Draft before being traded to the Blues on July 12, 2019. He was signed as a free agent by the Canucks on July 13, 2022.
