The Vancouver Canucks have signed free-agent goalie Ryan Miller to a three-year contract worth $18 million.

ProHockeyTalk's Jason Brough reports the two sides agreed to the deal shortly after free agency opened on Tuesday afternoon, adding Miller to Eddie Lack and Jacob Markstrom in the team's stable of goaltenders.

The 33-year-old Miller began last season with the Buffalo Sabres but was traded to the contending St. Louis Blues at the trade deadline, where he had a .903 save percentage and allowed 2.47 goals per game.

The Canucks opened 2013 with Roberto Luongo in the net but sent the veteran to the Florida Panthers for the 24-year-old Markstrom. The team also drafted highly touted goalie prospect Thatcher Demko in Saturday's NHL Entry Draft.
