VANCOUVER -- Kevin Bieksa is not going anywhere.

The Vancouver Canucks defenceman re-signed with the team Monday, avoiding the unrestricted free agent market and staying with the team that drafted him in 2001.

According to multiple reports, Bieksa's contract is for five years with a cap hit of $4.6 million. It also comes with a no-trade clause.

Last season, the 30-year-old Grimsby, Ont., native had six goals and 22 points in 66 games while scoring five goals and 10 points in 25 playoff games.
