The Canucks have made a splash in the NHL trade pool. According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Vancouver has traded Kevin Connauton and a second-round draft pick for Stars forward Derek Roy.  The longtime Sabre has potted just four goals in his first season in Dallas but has the capability to be a 30-goal scorer, proven by his 32 snipes during the 2007-08 campaign. Roy, 29, scored 17 goals and added 27 assists in 80 games a season ago. Connauton was Vancouver’s No. 4 prospect in Future Watch, according to The Hockey News’ Brian Costello, which can be seen in his tweet below. DAL trades Derek Roy to VAN for Kevin Connauton and a 2nd rd pick. #tradecentre— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 02, 2013 Canucks deal for Derek Roy still subject to trade call with the league, but a good pickup indeed for Van city— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) April 02, 2013 Dallas-bound Kevin Connauton was Vancouver's No. 4 prospect in Future Watch...a solid B-list prospect very close to being NHL-ready.— Brian Costello (@bcostellothn) April 02, 2013 FYI the Roy deal does not rule Vancouver out of the Ryane Clowe mix ...— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) April 02, 2013
