NHL Rumors: Valeri Nichushkin to Vancouver Canucks


The Vancouver Canucks are still looking for a player to fill their second line left wing. GM Jim Benning was rumored to be interested in free agent Jiri Hudler, who recently signed with the Dallas Stars instead.

The Canucks may be interested in the Stars Valeri Nichushkin. Nichushkin was drafted 10th overall by the Stars in 2013. He is s a big, speedy winger with skill, a strong shot, and good play-making ability. He has not lived up to expectations as a top draft pick, but he has the potential to break out with a new team.

Vancouver has around $3.5 million in cap space, that they could spend on the unsigned Nichushkin. If the Canucks place an offer sheet on Nichushkin, it's unlikely the Stars would match.
