The veteran defenceman was a first-round draft pick of the Nashville Predators, selected 12th overall in the 2001 Entry Draft.
After six seasons in Music City plus a couple of years in the minors, Hamhuis became a free agent in 2010 and signed a six-year contract with the Canucks.
In his first year with the club, he helped Vancouver to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost to the Boston Bruins.

The 37-year-old ends his career with 59 goals and 297 assists in 11-hundred-and-48 N-H-L games, and an Olympic gold medal earned in Sochi in 2014.
