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 don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
