Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has acquired left wing Nikolay Goldobin and a conditional fourth round pick in 2017 from San Jose in exchange for Jannik Hansen.

"Nikolay is a gifted offensive player with good hands and good release on his shot," said General Manager Jim Benning. "His play away from the puck has improved this year in the American League and we believe with his skillset and continued development, he has the ability to become a valuable member of our team."

"Jannik has been an important part of our team for over a decade and we would like to thank him, his wife Karen and their children for all they've done and wish them all the best in San Jose," continued Benning. "While this was a difficult decision to make, this trade helps us with our goal of continuing to build a younger, skilled team for the future."

Goldobin, 21, appeared in 46 games for the San Jose Barracuda this season, recorded 41 points (15-26-41) and ranked third on the team in scoring. He also played two games for the Sharks in 2016.17. The Moscow, Russia native has appeared in 11 NHL games, scoring two points (1-1-2). He recorded his first NHL goal in just his second career game.

On the international stage, Goldobin represented Russia at the 2015 World Junior Championships. The 5'11", 180 pound forward recorded five points (2-3-5) in seven games played, ranking tied for third for the lead in team scoring, and earned a silver medal. He also appeared at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka tournament where Russia placed fifth.

Prior to his professional career, Goldobin played two seasons for the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League. Over the course of two seasons he collected 162 points (68-94-162) over 135 games. He appeared at the 2014 CHL Top Prospects Game for Team Cherry and was named Player of the Game.

Goldobin was originally selected 27th overall in the first round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft by the San Jose Sharks.
