Vancouver Canucks Give Player Permission to Find a Trade

Published October 10, 2023 at 3:38 PM

The Vancouver Canucks and one of their players have agreed to part ways. The only thing that's left to do is find a team that's willing to trade for him.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, Conor Garland and his agent have been given the go ahead by General Manager Patrick Allvin to find a trade partner. At issue is the fact that Garland has this season plus two more remaining on his current contract. It carries an annual cap hit of $4.95 million

"There is word this afternoon that Vancouver has granted Conor Garland permission to talk to other teams about a potential trade. Tight cap situation, see if there's a better fit around the NHL." - Elliotte Friedman

While Garland was picked up in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes, his current contract was negotiated by previous Vancouver GM Jim Benning. Garland has been good the past two seasons, putting up 52 and 46 points respectively. However, it seems the two sides believe change will make things better. It also worth noting that Garland recently changed agents, and is now represented by Judd Moldaver. Moldaver's client list includes Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews, among several others.
