The Canucks appear to have found a place for journeyman Alex Biega, and Biega appears to have found a role in the NHL 10 years after being drafted by the Buffalo Sabres.

The Canucks have used Biega in 25 contests this season, and it appears they believe he can continue to contribute in their system, and on Monday TVA's Renaud Lavoie announced a two year extension for Biega worth $1.5 million.

Accoring to Lavoie, Biega will earn $700,000 in the first year of the contract, and $800,000 for the second season. Biega has now played 32 games over two seasons for the Canucks, the first franchise to use Biega at the NHL level, and although this is a very low cost deal for the Canucks, Biega is undoubtedly very happy to remain a Canuck for the foreseeable future.
