Close to a dozen teams are believed to be interested in signing unrestricted free agent Shane Doan, with the Vancouver Canucks among the favourites, according to the winger's agent.

Doan, 35, has spoken with Canucks assistant general manager Laurence Gilman and has expressed interested in playing for the team, agent Terry Bross told CKWX in Vancouver.

Doan has spent his entire career with the Phoenix Coyotes-Winnipeg Jets organization since being drafted in the first round in 1995.

Gilman, who joined the Canucks in 2008, worked previously with the Coyotes.
