The Canucks have signed Alex Edler to a six-year extension.

No word yet on the dollar amount, but his last deal carried a $3.25 million cap hit. The defenseman was set to be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. Edler is a very good offensive defenseman, and, at 26 is only about to begin his prime years. He had 49 points in 82 games last season.
