Brandon Sutter Traded to Vancouver Canucks

The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded Brandon Sutter to the Vancouver Canucks, along with a 2016 third-round draft pick in return for Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening and a second-round draft pick in 2016, as reported by Katie Strang at ESPN.com.

Sutter is under contract through 2015-16, at an annual cap hit of $3.3 million.  The pivot, and former number 11 overall draft pick back in 2007, has 185 points in 495 regular season NHL games.  He scored a strong 21 goals in 80 games last season for the Penguins, to go along with a goal and an assist in five of Pittsburgh's playoff games.

Bonino is known primarily for his time with the Anaheim Ducks, where in 2013-14, he notched a very healthy 49 points in 77 regular season games.  He is under contract through 2016-17, at an annual cap hit of $1.9 million.

Clendening, a second round draft pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2011, and 22 year-old defenseman, has four points in 21 NHL games, spent mostly with Vancouver.
