VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have signed free-agent goaltender Ryan Miller.

The three-year deal is reportedly worth US$18 million.

Miller was seen as the best goalie on the free-agent market this year.

The Canucks need a proven goaltender after trading Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo in the past 13 months.

The St. Louis Blues acquired Miller from Buffalo in February, hoping he could lead them deep into the playoffs. But the club was eliminated by the Blackhawks in the first round after Miller allowed 19 goals and posted a lacklustre .897 save percentage.

He posted a 25-30-4 record with a 2.64 goals-against average and .918 save percentage this season.
