    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) - The Vancouver Canucks may have found their backup to Dan Cloutier.

    The Canucks on Thursday signed free agent goaltender Brent Johnson, a former starter for the St. Louis Blues.

    Terms were not disclosed, but Johnson made $1.1 million while splitting the 2003-04 season with St. Louis and Phoenix.

    A fifth-round pick of Colorado in 1995, Johnson was acquired by the Blues in May 1997 but did not make his NHL debut until 1998-99, when he went 3-2-0 in six games. Two seasons later, the 28-year-old was given the starting job and excelled, posting career highs of 34 wins and five shutouts with a 2.18 goals-against average.

    Johnson continued his strong play that postseason, becoming the fourth goalie in NHL history to record three consecutive shutouts in a playoff series.

    "Brent has proven that he can play and play well at the NHL level, and we are excited to have him under contract," Vancouver general manager Dave Nonis said. A native of Farmington, Michigan, Johnson was traded to the Coyotes in March 2004. He combined to go 5-9-2 with one shutout and a 2.51 GAA in 18 games.

    In 151 career contests, Johnson is 77-53-13 with 12 shutouts and a 2.28 GAA.

    "With over 150 games of NHL experience, Brent will be given every opportunity at camp to compete for a job with the Canucks," Nonis said. "He adds a great deal of depth to our goaltending position."

    Johnson likely will battle for the backup job with journeyman Wade Flaherty and Alex Auld, who made several starts for the Canucks during the 2004 Western Conference quarterfinals against Calgary.

          So this basically guarantees that the Canucks will not make it anywhere in the playoffs.

              One historic performance making a professional athlete look better than he actually is? Kerry Wood says hi.

              Man, if the Vancouver fans hated Cloutier's soft goals, they're just gonna LOOOOOVE Brent.....
