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.
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.
