Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks have acquired Tyler Motte and Jussi Jokinen from the Blue Jackets for Thomas Vanek.

Motte was a part of the Artemi Panarin trade this summer, but only had five points (3G / 2A) in 31 games with the Blue Jackets this year. He has struggled at the AHL level as well, picking up just 19 goals and eight assists (27 points) in his last 60 AHL games. So this return doesn’t make a lot of sense for the Canucks.

The Blue Jackets have recalled Tyler Motte from Cleveland (AHL).

Motte was acquired along with Artemi Panarin this offseason and it looks like he could make his Blue Jackets debut on Monday. Motte has been recalled because Cam Atkinson (lower-body) is banged up. Motte has collected five goals and two assists (seven points) in seven AHL games and has seven career NHL points (4G / 3A) in 33 games with the Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks have reassigned Tyler Motte to Rockford (AHL).

Motte, 21, has scored four goals with three assists in 32 games with the Blackhawks this season. Motte started the year with the Blackhawks, so he heads to Rockford for the first time this season. He had five points (2G / 3A) in five AHL games a season ago.

Motte expected to play with Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov on Friday.

Motte picked up one assist in 12:16 in his NHL debut on Wednesday and will be rewarded by being bumped up to the second line tonight. In the Blackhawks’ morning skate, Motte skated with Kane in Anisimov, a spot usually reserved for Artemi Panarin, who was moved to the top line with Jonathan Toews. Marian Hossa was bumped out of the top-6—this is a look the Hawks gave in the preseason, let’s see how it works out in Nashville tonight.

Motte likely to start the season with the Blackhawks.

Motte, 21, was a standout at the University of Michigan last season, picking up 32 goals and 24 assists (56 points) in 38 games. His decision to leave Michigan to try and make the Blackhawks appears to have been a good one as it looks like the 21-year-old will not only start the season in Chicago, but start on a line with Artem Anisimov and Patrick Kane.
