Rich Dhaliwal recently disclosed that Anthony Beauvillier might be the next player on the Canucks' trading block.


"...I heard Beauvillier's name...I heard his name on the trade market on the weekend."


There's been a shift in Conor Garland's situation; he now seems more open to staying with the Canucks. This change of heart comes amidst the difficulty in facilitating a trade and the team's impressive performance. Consequently, Beauvillier is now reportedly the primary candidate for a trade, influenced partly by his contract status:

"Sounds like the #Canucks are looking to move Anthony Beauvillier instead of Conor Garland now. Tocchet likes Garland's game. With Blueger nearing a return and Höglander playing solid, there's a logjam up front."


Beauvillier To Be Traded Once Again?

Beauvillier has played 12 games this season, contributing 5 points. Despite being a skilled forward, he has frequently been reassigned within the team, currently playing on the Canucks' fourth line.

In the final stretch of his three-year contract, valued at $12.45 million, Beauvillier will soon be an unrestricted free agent, making him an attractive trade piece due to the Canucks' abundance of wingers.

With Beauvillier potentially on the trading block, the Canucks are poised to continue their search for a right-handed defenseman, viewing him as a viable trade asset in their ongoing efforts.
