Linden Vey sent to Canucks in trade with Kings; L.A. gets No. 50 pick in return

PHILADELPHIA - Right-winger Linden Vey was traded to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday by the Los Angeles Kings for the 50th overall pick.

The 22-year-old Vey had five assists in 18 games for Los Angeles last season.

He had 55 goals and 103 assists over three season with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate.

Vancouver acquired the 50th pick in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday. The Canucks sent defenceman Jason Garrison, the rights to forward Jeff Costello and a seventh-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft to Tampa in return.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
