The Canucks acquired Adam Clendening from the Blackhawks for Gustav Forsling.

Clendening, 22, is a solid puck-moving defenseman who has had a hard time cracking the roster in Chicago. He has registered 13 points (1G / 12A) in 38 games with Rockford (AHL) this season and his move to Vancouver immediately makes him their top D prospect. You could see him swap places with Frank Corrado and be playing with the Canucks right away.

Clendening, 22, was recalled when Trevor van Riemsdyk went out with a knee injury and should be able to stick with the Hawks in TVR’s spot for the next 3-4 months. Clendening is an averaged sized with above average offensive instincts. He can move the puck around with ease, which is why he will see second power-play minutes in his debut.
