The Canucks Have Traded for Derek Roy

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Canucks have traded Kevin Connauton and a draft pick for Derek Roy of the Dallas Stars

Well, looks like Mike Gillis has found his centreman. TSN has announced that the Canucks have acquired Derek Roy from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Kevin Connauton and a second round draft pick. Details from TSN:

The Dallas Stars have traded forward Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks for a second round draft pick and prospect Kevin Connauton.

The 29-year-old Roy has scored four goals and 18 assists in 30 games with the Stars this season. . . .

In 579 career NHL games, Roy has scored 165 goals and 284 assists. He is in the final year of a six-year $24 million contract.

I am sure the writers here will have much more analysis shortly. But for now, feel free to discuss the deal in the comments below. With Ryan Kesler returning soon, things suddenly are looking up for the Canucks right now, eh?
