The 25-year-old Granlund had 12 points in 53 games for the Canucks this past season.
The Canucks acquired Granlund from the Calgary Flames in a February 2016 trade.
After being picked in the second round (45th overall) by Calgary in the 2011 draft, Granlund broke into the NHL with the Flames in 2013-14.
