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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
