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

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
