Canucks deal for Alberts
Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have acquired defenceman Andrew Alberts from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2010 third-round draft selection.

Alberts, 28, has played in 62 games this season for the Carolina Hurricanes, registering 10 points (2-8-10), 74 penalty minutes and a plus-7 ranking. The Minneapolis, MN, native has played in 325 NHL games, collecting 42 points (4-38-42) and 366 penalty minutes. In eight NHL playoff games he has registered one point (0-1-1) and 10 penalty minutes.

The 6'5", 218-pound defenceman was originally drafted in the sixth round, 179th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.







Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
