Yesterday, Canuck fans said goodbye to Kevin Bieksa after the defenceman was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a second round draft pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.
Today marks a few more changes to the Canucks roster.
Controversial right winger Zack Kassian and a 5th round draft pick now belong to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Brandon Prust. Many are saying that Brandon’s physical style of playing (he’s a guy known for deliver big bodychecks and defending his teammates) will quickly become a Canucks fan favourite.
The Canucks have signed former Bruins defenceman, Matt Bartkowski, to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million.
And Vancouver is saying goodbye to forward Brad Richardson. The Arizona Coyotes signed the free agent centre to a three-year deal worth $2.08 million per season.
