Canucks acquire center Derek Roy from Dallas

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Vancouver Canucks have acquired center Derek Roy from the Dallas Stars to add some much-needed depth at forward.

The Canucks sent defenseman Kevin Connauton and a second-round pick to Dallas. The team confirmed the trade on its website Tuesday.

Vancouver needs scoring with its second line hit hard by injuries. Mason Raymond recently joined Ryan Kesler and David Booth on the injured list with a sore shoulder.

Roy has four goals and 18 assists in 30 games with Dallas this season. He previously spent eight seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, scoring 161 goals with 266 assists in 549 games.

The Ottawa native will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Connauton has seven goals, 18 assists and a minus-12 rating in 60 games with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves this season.
