The Vancouver Canucks could have a young addition to their blue line before the end of the season.

Canucks general manager Jim Benning confirmed Friday that the club is trying to sign prospect Nikita Tryamkin.

Tryamkin - a 2014 third-round draft pick by the Canucks - just finished his fourth season with Yekaterinburg Automobilist of the KHL.

The 21-year-old defenseman recorded four goals and 11 assists while accumulating 71 penalty minutes in 53 games this season.
