Canucks send defenceman Raphael Diaz to Rangers for fifth-round pick

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have sent defenceman Raphael Diaz to the New York Rangers for a fifth-round pick.

A source confirmed the deal to The Canadian Press.

Diaz came to Vancouver last month in a trade with Montreal that sent right winger Dale Weise to the Canadiens.

He played just six games with the Canucks, scoring a goal and adding an assist.

In 134 games with Montreal and Vancouver, the native of Zurich has five goals, 33 assists and 48 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
