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.
