VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks signed defenseman Lukas Krajicek and forward Alexandre Burrows to new contracts as prospect camp opened on Friday.

Burrows, who had seven goals and 12 points in 43 games as a Canucks rookie last season, signed for three years.

Krajicek was acquired as part of the five-player trade that also brought goaltender Roberto Luongo to Vancouver and sent forward Todd Bertuzzi, goaltender Alex Auld and defenseman Bryan Allen to Florida.

In three seasons in Florida, Krajicek had 23 points in 90 games.

Terms of Krajicek's deal were not released.
