Forward Sven Baertschi is looking for a fresh start, and the Vancouver Canucks are now seeking a trade partner, his agent told TSN's Rick Dhaliwal.

"We would like to get traded, I am in contact with (GM) Jim Benning, he knows that," agent Andre Rufener said.

The 27-year-old Baertschi has only made six appearances for the Canucks this season, recording two assists. He's spent the majority of his campaign with the AHL's Utica Comets, posting 22 points in 15 games.

"I am not happy with the way this season has gone for Sven," Rufener added. "He played well when he was in the NHL. In my opinion, he did not get the opportunity he needed."

Baertschi was limited to 26 games with the Canucks last season due to injuries, tallying nine goals and 14 points.

The Calgary Flames drafted him 13th overall in 2011.
