The Vancouver Canucks announced that Blair Jones has agreed to a one-year contract.

The financial details were not announced, but Jones is coming off of a one-year, two-way deal that had a $600,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level.

The 28-year-old forward recorded nine goals and 21 points in 33 games with the AHL’s Lehigh Valley Phantoms last season. He also logged four games with the Philadelphia Flyers and averaged 6:55 minutes per contest.

Jones is a veteran of 132 NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Calgary Flames, and Flyers. Although he’s been unable to secure a regular spot with an NHL squad, he has appeared in at least four contests at the top level in eight of the last nine seasons.
