"Troy Stecher is an important part of our team," said Canucks general manager Jim Benning. "He's a talented two-way defenseman who competes every shift. Troy has a willingness to always improve his game and is an example of a young player committed to being a professional."
The Richmond, B.C. native's point total fell from 24 as a rookie to 11 in his sophomore campaign. However, he nearly doubled his hit total with 111, and blocked 75 shots.
Stecher was originally signed as an undrafted college free agent after a stellar NCAA career, highlighted by winning a national championship with the University of North Dakota in 2015-16. He played alongside future NHLers Nick Schmaltz and Drake Caggiula, and current Canucks teammate Brock Boeser.
