The Canucks acquired Francis Perron and a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Sharks for Tom Pyatt and a 2019 sixth-round.

Perron had 18 goals and 29 assists (47 points) in 63 games with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL) this year. Perron is a former seventh-round pick who was dealt to San Jose as a part of the Erik Karlsson trade. Perron will likely start 2020 with Utica (AHL).

The Canucks acquired J.T. Miller from the Lightning for a conditional 2020 first-round pick, a 2019 third-round pick and Marek Mazanec.

The Lightning needed to clear some cap-space with Brayden Point and others set to become RFA’s on July 1st, so they move Miller and his $5.25M cap-hit. After scoring 10 goals in his first 19 games following his trade to Tampa Bay, Miller recorded just 13 goals with 34 assists (47 points) in 75 games in his first full season with the Lightning. He was stuck in a bottom-6 role with Tampa but should be in the top-6 with the Canucks.

The Canucks have re-signed Alex Edler to a two-year contract worth $12 million ($6.0M AAV).

Edler is coming off of one of the best seasons of his career despite missing 26 games due to injury. Edler scored double-digit goals for the first time since 2011-12 and added 24 assists. That’s a 15-goal, 35-assist (50 points) per 82 game campaign from the 33-year-old, who hasn’t appeared in 82 games since 2012. With the Canucks emerging as a strong offensive team, Edler will carry some fantasy value into 2019-20 but injuries are always a huge concern for the big Swede.

Ferland (upper-body) is expected to play in Game 1 vs. the Bruins.

Ferland has been sidelined by an upper-body injury since Game 3 of round one vs. the Capitals but is expected to play in Boston on Thursday. Ferland told reporters he is feeling fine physically after Monday’s practice and will likely be eased back into playoff action on the fourth line with Greg McKegg and Jordan Martinook.

Ferland (upper-body) will not play in Game 3 but could return for Game 4.

The Hurricanes could get Andrei Svechnikov and Jordan Martinook back in Game 3 but they will have to wait at least one more game for Ferland. The 27-year-old has been out since Game 3 of the first round but was on the ice again on Wednesday and is targeting a Game 4 return. The Hurricanes have moved out to a 2-0 series lead and will be even more dangerous when all three forwards are healthy and back in the lineup.
