Ryan Shannon heads to Ottawa for Lawrence Nycholat
Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have acquired defenseman Lawrence Nycholat in exchange for Ryan Shannon from the Ottawa Senators.
Nycholat mostley played in Bingampton last season (he played 3 games with the Senators) and was made expandable after the Meszaros trade created a logjam at the Sens blueline with the arrivals of Kuba and Picard.
Shannon played 27 games with the Canucks last season, recording 13 points. He was acquired for forward Jason King from Anaheim in 2007.
