Canucks acquire forward Jeff Costello from Sens for blue-liner Patrick Mullen

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks acquired left-winger Jeff Costello from the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday in exchange for defenceman Patrick Mullen.

Costello, 23, has 19 points (11 goals, eight assists) and 69 penalty minutes in 34 games as team captain with Notre Dame this season. He was originally selected by Ottawa with the 146th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Mullen, 27, has 20 points (7-13) in 46 games this season with Utica of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
