Vancouver Canucks & Detroit Red Wings Complete Huge Trade

In a somewhat surprising move the Vancouver Canucks and Detroit Red Wings have completed a trade which sees defenseman Filip Hronek end up in Vancouver.

The move sees the Canucks ship out a first-round pick, the one they received for Bo Horvat, along with a second rounder in '23. They'll receive Hronek and a '23 fourth-round pick in the process.

Hronek is 25-year-old right-handed defenseman who is signed through next season at $4.4 million. He's appeared in 60 games this season, recording 38 points. The Canucks shipped out Luke Schenn to the Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this week and this will help replace some minutes on the right side of their blue line.

The Canucks continue to try and re-tool on the fly as they aren't committed to a full rebuild. They continue to talk trades on Brock Boeser, JT Miller and Conor Garland.
