Canucks land Lapierre from Anaheim
The Vancouver Canucks acquired forward Maxim Lapierre and minor-league forward MacGregor Sharp from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Joel Perreault and the Canucks' third-round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft.

This is Lapierre's third team this season. He started the season with the Montreal Canadiens before he was dealt to the Anaheim Ducks on Dec. 31. Just 21 games later, Lapierre will head north to play for the NHL-leading Canucks.

He has 5 goals, 8 assists and 72 penalty minutes in 59 games.

Perreault has played most of this season with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL and had 0 points in 7 games with the Canucks.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
