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

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

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
