Canucks Acquire Klatt From Flyers
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) _ The Vancouver Canucks bolstered their right wing by acquiring Trent Klatt from the Philadelphia Flyers today for a draft choice.
The Flyers will receive a sixth-round selection in the 2000 draft.
Klatt, a University of Minnesota product who broke into the NHL with the then-Minnesota North Stars in 1991-92, has no points in two games with the Flyers this season. Last year in Philadelphia, he had 14 goals, 28 assists and 16 penalty minutes in 82 games.
The Canucks, who open a five-game road swing in Carolina on Tuesday, lack depth on the right side. With Pavel Bure suspended for not reporting to the team, Vancouver’s only other proven right wing is Alexander Mogilny.
In their last game, the Canucks tried using Todd Bertuzzi, normally a left wing, on the right side of their second line.
