Darren Dreger of TSN announced today that the Canucks had traded Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm for David Booth, Steve Reinprecht and a 3rd rounder.


Samuelsson (6GP-1G-2A-3P)  has a good shot, size and also has a very good two-way ability. He plays a solid game in all three zones and can also play the point on the power play.


Marco Sturm (6GP-0G-0A-0P) was recently signed by the Canucks to a one year deal on July 1st.  The 33 year old has excellent speed and puck-handling skills. His speed makes him valuable on the PP and PK.


David Booth (6GP-0G-1P) has had an off start to the year. But usually, he can put up points and is ultra aggressive on the forecheck. Also boasts a nose for the net. Works very hard and is good in the corners. He also has a ton of speed.


Steve Reinprecht has yet to play this season, and will report to Vancouver’s farm team in Chicago. He has great speed, natural offensive instincts and a good shot.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
