That the 25-year-old will stay in Vancouver for at least another year has already been confirmed when the Canucks tendered a so-called qualifying offer on June 30 to retain the rights on the player.

"I will accept the offer, but will continue to negotiate with the Canucks," Weber said then. In the meantime, the negotiations have come to an end and the two parties have agreed on a new one-year contract worth $850,000, as TSN reports. With the qualifying offer, Weber's minimum salary would have been $715,000.
