Canucks trade Beauvillier to Blackhawks
The Vancouver Canucks dealt forward Anthony Beauvillier to the Chicago Blackhawks for a fifth-round pick in next year's draft, his former club announced Tuesday.
Beauvillier played less than a full season with the Canucks over the last two campaigns. He produced two goals and six assists over 22 games in 2023-24 after collecting nine tallies and 11 helpers across 33 contests down the stretch with Vancouver in 2022-23.
The Canucks acquired the 26-year-old from the New York Islanders in the Bo Horvat trade this past January. Beauviller played parts of seven seasons with the Isles, primarily occupying a secondary scoring role despite New York selecting him 28th overall in 2015.
Beauvillier is a pending unrestricted free agent with a $4.15-million cap hit, according to CapFriendly.
Earlier Tuesday, the Blackhawks terminated veteran winger Corey Perry's contract over what they called "unacceptable" conduct.
