Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks reeled in free agent defenseman Jason Garrison with a six-year contract on Sunday.

The 27-year-old British Columbia native and undrafted free agent out of Minnesota-Duluth recorded 23 goals and 59 points in 190 games over four NHL seasons -- all with Florida.
