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

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
