Canucks trade Weise to Canadiens for Diaz

The SportsXchange

The Vancouver Canucks acquired defenseman Raphael Diaz from the Montreal Canadiens for forward Dale Weise on Monday.

Diaz, 28, had 11 assists and was third on the Canadiens with 100 blocked shots in an average of 18:53 of ice time over 46 games. He will play for Switzerland at the Sochi Olympics.

Diaz, who signed with the Canadiens as an undrafted free agent in September 2012, has four goals and 41 points in 128 NHL games. He is in the final year of a two-year, $2.45 million contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent in July.

Weise, 25, has three goals and nine assists while averaging 7:45 of ice time in 44 games.

Weise was selected by the New York Rangers in the fourth round of the 2008 NHL draft. He has 10 goals and 26 points in 162 games with the Rangers and Canucks. He can become a restricted free agent after the season.
